As I have mentioned before, my dad loves to go fishing. I try to keep my eye out for any type of stamp or image that is associated to fishing with him in mind.
I was a part of an image swap that had Riley & Company images. I was excited that I received two of the Fishing Riley images. One each for my dad and father-in-law. Well, I was only able to make one card. ** Insert pet peeve here ** Don't you just not get it as to why people stamp an image that needs to be colored in an ink that is not suitable for coloring?! Just sayin'! ** Since my dad's birthday is this week, he gets the card!
You may notice that I used the same paper and colors from a previous project. I really thought that they worked for both. Here is Daddy O's card:
I colored the Fishing Riley with Copic markers. I used Nestabilities to cut the image and the blue layer. The water was sponged on with Stampin' UP! Bashful Blue ink.
I used Stickles in Patina for the hat, reel and bob. I used Stickles in Diamond Dust for the water highlights. The glitter brad is the Reflections brand from Michael's.
I just love the Riley's and I know my dad will too! Thanks, for stopping by.
