Ricky Fishing Expert

One of my nephews recently celebrated his birthday.  I know he loves to fish, so I wanted a “fishing” image for his card.  I found this great image called Ricky Fishing Expert from Tiddly Inks.

I used my Copics to color him and have listed the colors I used at the bottom of this post.

Since it is a digital image and I wanted to cut the image out, I used my Scan N Cut to do the fussy cutting for me.  I am so happy with the Scan N Cut.  I think it does a great job.  I wanted to create a scene for him, so I found some great digital paper that looked like sand, and another paper that looked like the sky.  I cut the sand paper on a curve using a curvy die and adhered it over the sky paper to give the appearance of a shoreline.  I found an old stamp that I had with some birds and stamped them in the sky.  I found another old stamp of some beach grass and stamped it several times.

I added some foam dots behind my fisherman to pop him up on the card.  A “Happy Birthday” sentiment, and the card was complete.

What a fun card to make!  Thanks for stopping by!
