Fisher Moose

Happy Tuesday All!

Hope your week is off to a good start. I actually had time yesterday to make some cards! Been a while since I had time for myself, so I really enjoyed it. Today over at Whimsy we have a special Meljen's Designs digital release. Melissa created some super cute images and sentiments in honor of her Dad and some of his favorite things!

I chose to make a card with this new image called Fisher Moose. He's adorable and perfect for masculine cards. I think I will send this one to my stepdad who is recovering from arm surgery. He's an avid fisherman and should appreciate this one!

 I colored the image with Copics and then distressed the edges and used a piercing tool to make the faux stitching. The papers are BG Oliver and have also been distressed. I accented with some eyelets and hemp twine and a fish charm. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps Ticket Sentiments and I cut it out with the new Ticket Die.

This card fits the challenges at:
Gingerloft - great outdoors
Sew Many Cards - DIGI STAMP and blue & white
Stamp Something - use something digi
Digi Doodle Shop's Best - cards for men
Pixie Dust Studio - cards for men or boys
Freshly Brewed - 2 or more patterned paper
Simon Says Stamp - Prince Charming
Meljen's Designs: Food (worms are fish food and fish can be eaten)

Thanks for dropping by today. Hope you have a super Tuesday! I hope to have more crafting time and something else to share tomorrow. We shall see! lol
