Bear-ly Fishin’ Spotlight

This week’s Spotlight set at Our Craft Lounge is Bear-ly Fishin’. A fun little set for that Fisherman in your life.

I did a little technique that I like to call "image cut away". I stamped all the images first before doing any cutting. I used my clouzzle to cut out the squares but only far enough that the bear, tire were still attached to the paper. After using the clouzzle, I went in with my scissors and xacto knife and cut out the unstamped cardstock.

Prismacolor markers were used to color the image. Added crystal effects to the tire. I wanted a fish ‘jumpin' out of the water. The image actually faces the other way when you stamp him so I used a mirror stamp and restamped the fish to face the other way. He also has crystal effects on him to make him look ‘wet’. Cloud stencil was used for the clouds.

I cutout the main cardstock so you could see right inside the card. Cut the saying apart so I could get it to fit in the little space.

I'm glad I checked my blog and saw your comment. I love how you did this card and I hope to buy that set of stamps soon. I'm also a fan of using prism markers also, I love the blending one can get with them.
Thanks for visiting my blog and I enjoyed looking over yours.

I LOVE that technique! The image works perfectly for it! OF coure, we LOVE nesties, but you just can't do this with nesties!

I started with PC for over a year, and now I have started a small collection of Copic - I'm at 24 now.....waiting for an order of 72....and WOWOWOWOW! There is a is huge.....they are SOO much juicer, so it will take some time, but Copic are going to KYSO! (KNOCK YOUR SOCKS OFF) BABY!!!!!
