Fisherman Gus

Today's card is a humorous one.  This manly image is "Gus Fishing".  I split the sentiment into to parts, using a photo editing software and cropping it.

The rest of the sentiment was written inside the card with my Cricut Explore.  I used the Cricut fin tip marker in Blueberry and the DS font "Bicycle for 2", included in the Access subscription.

I created a cloud stencil and blended the clouds with my distress inks (Stormy Sky), and cut out a few little clouds for dimension.

The waves are also a DS image, that I layered, with the boat in-between them. I added a little jumping fish I happened to see in DS too.  The color scheme and pattern paper is from CTMH "Regatta" which is no longer available.  The colors are actually, Sapphire Blue and Glacier.

I did add Happy Father's Day on the inside of the card, but of course you can make it for any occasion.  I think this would be a great image for a man retiring, who plans on spending time fishing.
