Fish for the Fellas

Today's Designed2Delight Challenge is to make a card for the flowers allowed!! 

I chose to work with one of my favorite masculine images called Catch of the Day.  I used two images to make tihs card.

For the first image, I colored the thin frame with Copic E44 and cut it out.  I used some Metallic Rub-Ons to color my fish (pink, green, grey) and then fussy cut it from the center of the image.

Next I colored the second image entirely blue with the Metallic Rub-ons.  I cut the image out, omitting the frame.

Finally, I paper pieced my image back together, layering my blue background over my fussy cut frame with foam tape. (yes there is a hole under it where the fish was...but who knows now?!)  I added the fish to the background colored piece with foam tape as well. 

Designer Papers are from BasicGrey's Archaic and Granola collections.  I added a touch of faux stitching and distressing to finish my card.  The sentiment is from Penny Black.  I added a vintage button with linen thread.

We hope you join in the fun!  Read more about the challenge here.
