Father's Day Card 2009 using #CD00546

This is theFather's Day card I made for Jeff this year. The girls have always enjoyed his stories... not just fishing, but all sorts of stories that supposedly have happened in his life. There may be a "thread" of truth. I had each of them write something about how they enjoy his stories. It was pretty touching. Sierra (age 17) wrote that she'll never be too old for a bedtime story and Savannah (age 14) wrote that she likes that he talks smack. LOL

This is a Visual DeSigns by Chris file #CD00546. Cut with my Wishblade. I added a close-up photo hoping you can see the detail. Love details!! I masked off the fish to grunge up the words using a Van Dyke charteuse ink and a water mister. Inked the edges with a little Van Dyke brown. Painted the 'frame" part of the image with a bit of gold Pearls. Unmasked the fish and painted it with two colors of Twinkling H2Os. Added a little pole, a rhinestone for the eye and a few stitch marks. Pretty easy and it really didn't take too long. Oh, yeah, Jeff had just restrung a reel that Friday night so I dug the fishing line out of the trash and used it as ribbon. It didn't want to tie well but a few glue dots did the trick.
