Congrats to Janeen, the newest Featured Stamper (FS647) on Splitcoast! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the birthday/fishing theme but used different images, different dies & different colors.

For my card, I was trying out this new Camo Bg stamp. I will not lie…I had a bit of trouble at first. First couple of times, I used it too much & just made a messy looking bg. The next 5 times, I couldn’t find a color combo I liked. It was going to be like the little fisherman’s vest..but again it looked too messy so I just used a small part of it for the vest. I finally went with sort of a watery color combo then stamped the little fish on top. A little more subtle, but I like it.

The fisherman was colored w/ Copics (except for the paper pieced vest) & I split the greeting above &  below him before adding a dark charcoal layer. The camo bg was actually done on printer paper..it was one of my practice sheets but I liked it so I just glued it to the same charcoal c/s & went w/ it.

Here’s the inside (I replaced the W in Wishes w/ an F from the Pawsitively greeting) & below it are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Today’s Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS439) on Splitcoaststampers is Friendship & this should be perfect for a friend, to just drop a note to say hi.


I thought this  greeting would be perfect w/ the Big Mouth Bass (isn’t he a cutie?) w/ some wavesBubbles & dragonflies floating around. Only problem was, the Fishing Pole kinda faced the wrong direction. Misti & a piece of blank rubber to the rescue! (Here’s a tutorial so you can see how it’s done.) I put the fishing pole into my Misti & the blank rubber piece under it. Inked & stamped the fishing pole several times onto the rubber. Wanted to make sure I got good ink coverage. Then I place the white card stock on top of the rubber & rubbed it w/ my hand & presto! A reverse image! Then I added the fish, waves, bubbles & dragonflies. After coloring, I added a little Wink of Stella to the fish & dragonflies. Hopefully you can see it a bit in the closeup below.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs May Release Blog Hop! you might want to start at the ODBD Blog so you don’t miss anything! 
For my card, I’m using the sensational new Fishing Net Background & The Waves on the Sea sets.
I stamped the fishing boat scene and colored it w/ Copics, purposely leaving the sky a little streaky. Ever notice how the colors of a brilliant sunset can look streaky like that? I added some highlights w/ a white gel pen and die cut w/ a Spellbinders circle die. The shape reminded me of a porthole, so I added eyelets and little thread knots to continue that look. The net background was stamped tone on tone on the cobalt panel and 2 lg white eyelets and some tied white cord were added. The sentiment was cut out and I used a sm corner rounder on the ends. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
