Fishing You The Best

Fishing You The Best


As I mentioned in my last post, the Perfectly Rustics site will no longer be hosting challenges after their last “Anything Goes With Glitter” challenge.

I had already made this card for a color challenge we were intending to run in a few weeks (using three Stampin’ Up! colours -Basic Black, Bermuda Bay, and Smoky Slate), and since there will be no color challenge, I decided to share it now.

For this project, I found a printed paper by Karen Foster Design called “Coral Reef” which matched the Stampin’ Up Bermuda Bay.  I used that as the backdrop for this card.  The frames were cut with dies from the Spellbinders 5×7 Matting Basics A and B sets.  The card stock I used is Stampin’ Up Smoky Slate, Bazzill Tiarra (similar to Smoky Slate), Core’dinations Mediterranean (similar to Bermuda Bay) and black.  (This card is 5×7)

The tag was cut from a die from the Heartfelt Creations “Decorative Flower Pot” die set by Spellbinders.  The stamp is from the Gina K Designs “Fishing You the Best” set (retired?) and was heat embossed with versamark ink and Gina K black embossing powder.  A piece of black string was added.

I filled a ziplock sandwich bag with clear Suave Sculpting (hair) Gel, and placed it over the fish paper and “under” the mats to make it look like the fish were in water.  I had done another card using this technique (HERE) and a tutorial (HERE).  For the tutorial, I used blue hair gel, but the paper I was using here was blue so I used clear gel on this project.
