Thanks, Dad


Fishing with Dad is one of the new stamp sets from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  I created my own version of a Polaroid picture using the image colored with Copic markers and the Sizzix Retro Circles embossing folder (supposed to represent water rings).  The boy's hair is covered with Amber Wheat flock for a fun change of pace.  It's a nice, two-toned flock.  Glossy Accents was used to "rubberize" their waders.

I covered a piece of cardstock with VersaMark and added Cerulean embossing powder.  I also sprinkled some Navy glitter into the powder before heat setting.  Once this was ready, I cut it to match the image size and framed the two pieces.  I also added lines of glitter throughout the water and near their pants with a Sakura glue pen and more Navy and Waterfall glitter.  I also outlined some fish scales on the fish with the glue pen and added a touch of Cloud Nine velvet glitter.

One of the other stamps in the set is a grouping of 3 lures.  I colored them with Copics and fussy cut each one out and added a bit of thread for the fishing line.  The bow is made from the same thread.  Finally, I stamped the sentiment (also part of the set) with Memento Danube Blue ink.
