Fishing silhouette

Hello everyone, hope you've had a lovely bank holiday weekend... We've not done much really, think we just needed to wind down a bit after our holiday.  We had a big sort out and rearranged our bedroom though, so we can put the cross trainer in there for me to use... really need to get exercising again!

Here's a card I made a while ago for an order, using one of my favourite silhouette stamps by Flourishes, I do love silhouettes.

I'm not sure if you can tell from the photo, but the spotty piece is raised up on foam pads while the image is flat behind it.

Items Used
Scalloped card blank - Craftwork Cards
Stamp - Kids Play - Flourishes
Dad stamp - Papermania (Wellington set)
Digi papers - Beach Cottage Pattern Pack - Pink Petticoat
Memory Box School of Fish die
Corner rounder punch
Distress Inks in Frayed Burlap and Old Paper

Off for a blog catch up... Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

A beautiful and serene card Lisa. Great men's card to have in the box. I too need to jump on a cross-trainer or something similar - gone too long without. Think it must be all this crafting I'm addicted to! LOL. X
