I created this birthday card for my dogs' trainer for his birthday. He's an avid fisherman and I thought this digi image from Bonibleaux Designs http://www.dudetimedoodles.com/ would be perfect for him. [My sentiment is inside and I used a Scrappy Mom's stamp.]
I used my Prismacolor pencils,and some Distress ink (Broken China) and a Rangers Ink inker pad to make the sky. The paper came from a small Noah's Ark pad that I got at Joann's last year. The wire is the wire used when making bracelets. I can't recall the cricut Cartridge I used for the mat. It might have been Just Because.
Lastly, I went to Wal-Mart and bought some bass weights for $1.50 a bag (7 per bag).
I created some very nice cards this weekend. I can't wait to showcase them. I am really proud of them. It's the first time, I felt that I really made some nice cards. I had the chance to use different techniques and practice some techniques.
Amuse-bouche: I am so excited that my friend was able to score us tickets to this year's San Diego Comic-Con. It takes place over 4 days in San Diego in July. This year's ticket sales were handled so poorly. I won't get into details except to say that the ticket website they used couldn't handle the traffic of buyers. We were able to score 3 days of the 4 thanks to my friend's perseverance and agile keyboard fingers. Thanks L!
