Gone Fishin by Julie Lavalette

Hello there Blogging friends its Julie here today.Thanks so much to all of you who have taken the time to leave me a comment or a ‘like’ on Facebook last week for my card and previous weeks, I appreciate it so much. Also a warm welcome to our new followers. This week I combined our challenge of red, white and blue into my card.

I matted and layered my seaside themed papers using the stacker dies, to make them look like a picture frame with a little scene inside. I used the new Old Barn Board die which comes with the words, log and fishing line. The log was cut out in Kraft paper and I distressed the edges, I placed a few foam pads in the middle and glue at the edges this added more dimension to my card. My stamped image had a fishing line on it, which I cut off. You will see the extended bit on my fishing line is now made using my die, don’t you just love the little hook on the end of this. I pressed the hook into my embossing ink and double embossed using silver embossing powder and threaded a few beads through it to give a 3D look of a float on the line.
 My birds are from the birdbath set and my little Starfish was made using the leaves from the miniature rose die.
Good Luck to everyone entering our Weekly Challenge.

Thanks for popping by, enjoy your weekend and I’ll see you all next Saturday.
