Hi! I struggle with masculine cards. But Sparkle N Sprinkle Gus - Fish Whisper rubber stamp set and Digital Set will make it very easy.
Sentiment is from Gus-Fish Whisper rubber set. It's stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Antiquities Embossing Powder. I cut it out with a die from Spellbinders Labels Two set. While the die was still in place I inked the paper with Broken China Distress ink. Then I used Sakura Glue Pen to draw a frame around the inking and covered the glue with Sea Spray Glitter.
Image is from Gus-Fish Whisper Digital Set. I used the pre-colored image and cut it out with a die from Spellbinders Radiant rectangle set. Same thing in here as with sentiment layer: while the die was still in place I inked the paper with Broken China Distress ink. Then I used Sakura Glue Pen to draw a frame around the inking and covered the glue with Sea Spray Glitter.
I glued some Shaved Ice Glitter to the fish. Love how it gives a look like the fish has a shiny scales. I covered fish, fisherman glasses, boots, fishing rod and few more things with Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops.
For the background I used a dull pattern paper. I made it prettier with an older Sparkle N Sprinkle stamp set named Wonky Lines Background. I placed the stamp to the Stamp Platform and used Versamark ink to make the impression. First stamped image was heat embossed with Sky Blue Spark Embossing Powder. Then I placed the paper to Stamp Platform up side down and made another impression. This time it was heat embossed with Antiquities Embossing Powder.
Edges of the matting layer are covered with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and Sea Spray Glitter. Some finishing touches was added with Dazzling Blue, Honey Gold Nuvo Glitter Drops. Cattails on the image was also covered with Honey Gold Glitter Drops.
