Just Hanging out!

Just hanging out 2012
    I do hope everyone had a wonderful week end. It is beautiful here in Wisconsin. Just a perfect a day to go fishing and have some fun with your Dad. We are celebrating FATHER’S DAY at  Cards for Men with our new Challenge #12 and it starts today June 4 until June 17 and that is Father’s Day. So if you have not made a card for Dad you still have a couple of weeks to get it done. I always make the grandkids cards for their Dad’s just like I do for Mother’s Day. They are getting older now and I think I’m going to get a project going and have them make just a little something special this year. Isaiah my grandson that lives in South Dakota will be here soon for the summer soon, that is always so exciting as we all miss him so much. 
   The stamp set is from Crafters Companion it is called Popcorn The Bear unmounted rubber stamp set fishing popcorn, I do have a few stamps added from another one of their sets. The stamp sets are pretty big and I was so happy that I have from Memory Box Debutante Frame die cut, the one big stamp fits perfect with that die cute. Paper is from Die Cuts with a View.
    Our sponsor for this challenge is Letraset, if you can stop by and see all the wonderful products.

I did stamp a couple extra fish and cut them out and added them to the card to give a 3D look. Also add some Diamond Glaze to give the look of being wet for the water. For the sky and water I used brilliance sky blue and a template.

These are the copic markers I used to color my card. Here is a close up of the stamped image.
