Fly fishing

This image is from My Heart Stamps for You.  I'm always on the look out for masculine images, since there are more males than females in my family.  I stamped the image twice.  One time for the card itself and one time in order to make a "mask"  For the mask, I cut my guy out carefully and then used repositionable double sided tape to layer him directly on top of the first stamped image.  I then used Copic markers and airbrushed the sky background.  These are the Copic markers I used for this project:

After coloring, I used my Spellbinders Labels Eight dies to cut out both the image and the brown frame around the image.  Finally, I inked the sides of my card using Distress inks.  I'm thinking this will make an excellent birthday or Father's day card for someone in my family.

Great coloring with those copics. I need to try those out sometime. I just saw that we're both in Claudine's class - that should be fun! I love the new look of your blog. Very bright and light. Thanks for stopping by my blog, too.
