Fishin Fella

Well I told you my super sweet friend Ashley sent me some Bella images but she also included some Fella images too. I love this fishing fella. My Dad and Stepdad are both fishermen so I knew I wanted to use this image for them. Alli Miles posted an awesome card using the Beach Fella and I cased her layout. I stamped the mellow moss panel with cheesecloth for tone on tone. I made the DP with my faux ribbon set from PaperTreyInk. The ribbon is some I got from Ribbons and Bow Oh My. They have an excellent selection of ribbon and shipping is super fast! I punched the circle of friendship with the 1" circle punch and matted it on the 1 3/8" mellow moss circle. The center of the circle of friendship is punched out with the 1/2" circle punch stamped in summer sun. The card base is brocade blue. I thought I would never use that color but I find myself grabbing it alot! I colored the fella with prismacolor pencils and blended with gamsol and stumps. The brads are mellow moss.

I know you've all been seeing some of the preview brochure cards on SCS! Im so excited about the new catalog. It seems like forever before July 1 will get here! My preview order should be in next week so I will be creating something for you soon. I will be back with some SCS challenges later this week I've been slacking on the challenges but I got some cards made for you today!
