  • Rainbow trout?  This city girl isn’t your expert.  However, a quick wash of Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzazz with my Aqua Painter added a splash of color.

  • Give the fish a “wink!”  I used the Gold Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to add a shimmery effect.  Dazzling in real life!

  • Very Vanilla Thick Baker’s Twine is the perfect “line” for my “catch.”  I attached it with Glue Dots and bumped up each fish with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

  5. Oh Mary, what a fabulous card for any fisherman!! those fishies are adorable and the sentiment is really perfect for the theme. Cute yet, simple and masculine, thank you for sharing.

  6. Mary this is such a cute masculine card! My dad is a fisherman so he would love this!
    I really like the new wood background for your photos! So cool

    • Thanks, Kari. I’m still playing around with the background and watermark. Not sure I’m “sold” yet but like testing the water creatively. I’m waiting on another photo lamp that will make the card pop on the wood more.

  7. Darling card Mary. LOVE how you added the Wink of Stella to the fish.

  8. I love this card – it is simple and powerful. The colors and the wink of stella give it a big punch. I do not have this set, but now I may need it…
