Gone Fishin'

This is my post at Sparkle N Sprinkle blog today!

Hi, Diane with you today and it looks like a good day to 'go fishin'!
The new May release brought us this super fun 'Gone Fishin' stamp set
that is just perfect for the guy in your life, 
either for Father's Day or a birthday!
Gone Fishin'
I first stared with a Memory Box stencil Texture Shine.
Reminded me of a nice sunny morning to fish on the lake.
I applied Dreamweaver's White embossing paste with a
I sprinkled a pretty Lemonade glitter on that,
then set it aside to dry.
Once dry I trimmed around the edges and
using  Double Sided Tear-ific TApe 1/4", I adhered it to a navy blue card stock.

Next, I stamped the image with Versamark, then sprinkled 
Cerulean embossing powder on and heat set with my heat tool.
I did the same with the sentiment using the same embossing powder.

I punched an anchor with a MS punch,
added Versamark to it, then coated it with 
Super Thick Silver Enamel Embossing powder.
I love the way it made it look like a real anchor.
A tip is to let it set up a few minutes before touching it
as, because it is thick it takes a little longer to dry then
normal embossing powder.

I finished by tying the anchor to a piece of twine, liking the 'pop of red'.

Wonderful guy card. The little pop of red around the sentiment makes it stand out and the glittered sun ray is spectacular.
