Digital Tuesday ~ Sportsman Card!

It's Tuesday!! This week the challenge on the Digital Tuesday Challenge Blog is SPORTS! Our family isn't big on the sports scene....but we have a family of men who like to fish!!

The Catch of the Day image from Designed2Delight is perfect for the fishermen! I colored the image with Copic Markers...YG91, E43, E44. I made my fish scales by using the Colorless Blender Solution on an old wash rag...dab it on and fish scales magically appear!! I cut out the fish and popped it up on foam tape for added dimension. I distressed the background with Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Tumbled Glass and Frayed Burlap.

Designer paper is by BasicGrey, cardstock is embossed with a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder and the sentiment is by Endless Creation. I added some fishing line and a nice little knot held on with a glue dot.

I hope you all can join us on this week's challenge!!
