One for the guys

Hi Everyone, this is a card I made last night, It's a challenge card for which asked for you to make a card for a boy or man's card , and I did this from one of the retired sets of SU. It's called on the fly, I stamped it on a tan color then water colored it and put it on a burgundy and then on navy, to give it a natural feel I added raffia around the blue, stamped the fish onto a separate piece and cut him out making him 3d, then added the greeting which comes from the Upsy Daisy set from SU.
Thanks again for looking


  1. That looks great Cindy. I always have problems with mens cards, but then the 2 main men in my life don't do many of the 'men' hobbies

  2. Hi Cindy, fantastic creaion, this is a great stamp! I really like your colouring on the image. Thanks for joining us this week. Joey.x

  3. Wow, awesome card Cindy. You watercolor very nicely:)

    I am not good at making manly cards. Yet, I am planning to make two for Father's Day and I am racking my brain.

    Good luck over at the challenge!

  4. Love it!! My husband and father in law love fishing. Great use of layering with the fish and string.

  5. Fabulous card for the boys! That stamp is perfect! Thanks for playing.
