I'm so excited to say that my card using Pattie's Creations Fisherman's Delight was selected to be published in the Designed to Color June/July 2012 edition. This is a new magazine that is both in print (by subscription) and online. One of the conditions of being published is that I couldn't share my project until 30 days after publication. So I'm sharing it with you now.
The image is colored with Copic markers and fussy cut out so I could pop dot the fish for extra dimension. I also applied Shimmerz (Angel Wings) paint to the fish for a more realistic look. Lifestyle Crafts Nesting Labels 7 were used for my mats and distressed with Distress Ink (Brushed Corduroy). The sentiment is a rubber stamp by Unity Stamps that has been stamped on a Sizzix Movers and Shapers (Mini Ticket set) die cut. The wires one each side of the image are actually Christmas ornament hooks that I picked up after Christmas because I thought they would look cool on a card. Added a bit of ribbon, and a perfect card for any fisherman. One more quick note - when I showed the card to my husband, he said "hey, those are my boots!" Yep, I got the color idea from a pair of rubber boots he has. Inspiration is everywhere.
I'm also entering this in the following challenge: Simon Says (sentiment).
