Fishing Buddies

Hi there, Shona here to share a Father's Day card with you today which I made using the Tutti Designs Fishing Buddies die

Here is the die cut I used:

I began by making my watery background paper. I brayered Kaleidacolor Creole Spice Ink onto glossy white cardstock.

After I had a god bit of ink on the card, I spritzed with water and brayered again, which gave a watery puddly look to the paper, which I liked. I picked up the really wet edge with a paper towel and allowed the piece to dry.

Meanwhile I cut out my die from heavy black cardstock. 

I used a scrap of gray down the middle of the die to catch the highlights. 

I put little bits of double sided tape to the back of the die cut and inserted the little grey pieces in their appropriate places. Scraperfect Best Glue Ever was then used to stick the die cut on top of the background piece. I then cut a piece of 4 3/4" x 6 3/4" piece of glossy cardstock and cut out the die again. This gave me a perfect sized frame to fit around the die cut.  

The sentiment (from an old Sparkle N' Sprinkle stamp set Fishing with Dad) was stamped using the Stamp positioner and the Same Kaleidacolor ink pad. The two pieces were then taped together to finish off the card. I thought I had a Father's Day die, which I had intended cutting out from the bottom of the card front, putting the excess piece of background behind it. However, I don't appear to have such a die, so I ended up having to stamp it!

Here are the products I used in my card today:
