This is the Valentine I made for my husband, Drew to go along withthe challenge over at the Fantabulous Cricut Blog, "Fun with Puns." Link up here: http://fantabulouscricut.blogspot.com/2012/02/challenge-me-monday-98.html
An avid Bass Fisherman, I think he gets a kick out of me making fish-themed cards! For this one, I used Wild Card for the Heart-shaped card, and Simply Charmed for the fish, and fishing rod. I know it totally does NOT look like how a large mouth bass or small mouth bass is shaped, but, I tried to color it as such with my new water pens and ink pads as described in previous post. He said I did a pretty good job on the coloring, so for that I am very proud!
I used a silver gel pen to color in the the little circles on the heart and hand-wrote the sentiment. And instead of using the cut out fishing line that was part of the cuts provided with his image, I used embroiddary floss and string it through the eyelets on the fishing rod. Tricky to do, hard not to rip the eyelets, but it worked! :o) I had to had something "fru-fru" because it is Valentine's Day afterall, so a little ribbon adhered with staples... Fru-Fru, but still kind of manly, with the metal stamples.
Thank you for looking!
