Father's Day Trout

Hello Everyone!  It was Father's Day here in Australia last Sunday and I made this card for my Dad, which I had planned to have up on my blog on Sunday - unfortunately my daughter and I have been very sick for about 4 days so it's only going up now as we are finally starting to recover.

Dad loves anything to do with the water so I thought this Leaping Trout image would be perfect for him!  As it's a digital, I've put it and the matching sentiment together from Leaping Trout and printed it onto some X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (I would list the colours however I was starting to burn up with a fever of 39.5C/103F at that point and of course I didn't write them down - sorry about that!).  It's been cut out with a stitched rectangle die.  The base is made of Old Olive, white and some FabScraps Beach Bliss DP.  Around this I've added some Hessian (Burlap) ribbon and then popped the trout image up on X-press It Foam Tape.  To finish I've added some chocolate pearls to the top corner.

Stamps - Leaping Trout (Power Poppy)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, White, Old Olive, FabScraps Beach Bliss DP
Ink - Printer
Accessories - Copics, Double Stitched Rectangle Die, Hessian Ribbon, Kaisercraft Chocolate Pearls, X-press It Foam Tape

That's all from me today, I'm hoping next time you pop by I'll be feeling a lot better and hope you are healthier than me and inspired to stamp!  :)

Wow, Kathy, I LOVE this card, and I really struggle with masculine cards...so this helps me a LOT! Hehe! What a beautiful trout with wonderful coloring, and I love the great DP with the hessian ribbon. I really need to print some of these and add some "guy" sentiments to have in my stash. Thanks for your wonderful inspiration, my friend! Hugs!
