Fishin' for Ed and a Blog Candy winner...

It's my husband Ed's birthday next week. In fact, he's a St. Patrick's Day baby. Well, he loves to go deep sea fishing, and always comes back with a load of fish...but, if he lake fishes, he always, and I mean always, catches everything but fish. Thus the sneaker in this card. Isn't this Bear-ly Fishing (Our Craft Lounge) bear the cutest? I thought he was perfect for my DH.

I stamped him with Versamark onto watercolor paper and embossed him with Detail Black ep (Judikins). I then colored him with Adirondack Dye Ink Reinkers (listed below in the supplies).
I added stickles to the water, ink distressed the edges with Frayed Burlap (Ranger Distress Ink)...which Michelle now carries in her store!! Woo-Hoo!! You really should go check out all the Distress Inks...I ADORE working them. I use them on the majority of my cards.

The sketch was the challenge on SCS this past Wednesday, found HERE.

Stamps - Bearly Fishing (Our Craft Lounge)
Paper -Crate, Spring Willow Medium, Watercolor
