This is my submission for the HMF #98 Challenge - Here Comes Summer. And finally today it feels like summer here in Calgary. We had the never ending winter which led into a spring full of rain. Now today finally a beautiful sunny day which is perfect for making a summer card. I have so many HM stamps but decided to borrow this one from my daughters collection. There is no better and peaceful way to spend a summer day like fishing. I think that these two little fishing buddies are adorable. Theres a little frog watching them and the fish are almost ready to take the bait - I mean tales.
The image was colored with copic markers on manga art paper and stamped with memento black ink. I used a square nesti to cut the image out and did the embossed edge which you can't really see in real life or in this picture. I added a thin SU more mustard frame to this and then cut out the green square using the eyelet squares nestabilities die. The corners were made with gold foil which I cut with a floral doily accent spellbinders die. I learned about embossing foil on the SCS site. I have learned so many new techniques and secrets from all the wonderful people on that website. I added sm blue brads to the corner flower centers and sm gold brads for the sides in the green eyelets. This is all attached to a square of brown cordinations textured cs and then SU more mustard.
I have a lot more HM stamps to share in future blogs. Thanks for visiting! Have a wonderful day!
