Whimsy Stamps Challenge - Summer Fun

Lots of Summer Fun Challenges lately aren't there? You think we are all wanting to skip out on work and go and have some fun? LOL  Well the Whimsy Stamps Inspiration Challenge this week is wanting to show off some summer fun! Around here if you were to ask Hubby... that would be loading up to go and fish for a few days... or weeks...   So when surfing through all the fabulous images at Whimsy I ran across one of the new images from LiaStampz - "Fishing" Gorgeous old fashioned image of a boy fishing!

I colored with my Copics (colors below) and then cut out with a Nesties label. My pattern papers are all from Prima - aren't they gorgeous with all those sunflowers. I took a band of one of the gingham pieces and the added some lace border punches down the side, I thought the Fiskars Daisy Dew punch matched up with all the flowers :0) - Everything is sewed down, and then I added six drops of Viva Decor Cream Pearl Pen. All of it is matted and then attached to a kraft card stock base. My sentiment is also from Whimsy Stamps - "great day to fish" love these sentiments perfect for you guy cards!

Then I added some dimensional glaze for the water. I did two coats. One to make sure it was covered and let it dry completely. Then a second to give it some movement you know like water really is :0)

Inside is simple with a few scraps.

Here are the colors used - 

Now for more summer fun make sure to pop over to the Whimsy Challenge - cute! cute! Love the other DT cards. Then once you look then join us! Easy rules and great prices.

On the run today - visit at the Dr and then lots of errands. We have been trying to plan all our in town trips for Wednesdays. Now that Hubby isn't driving into town each day for work we are trying to save gas and plan ahead. Hey... it works out most of the time.

HUGS and
