The 1st is a Father's Day card just in time for this Sunday. Masculine cards are always a challenge for me but with the Fly Fishing stamp set I cant lose. My husband is an avid fly fisherman and cherishes anything with these scenes so I know he will love it.
The trout is clear embossed and then coloured with pens and ink. I was trying to get a rainbow trout look which I think came out ok. It is so much nicer in real life as the embossing really makes the trout come alive and feel like it has scales. I could have coloured water and reeds etc.. but I felt that by keeping it simple it gives the trout pride of place.
