Fish Collage

Life has temporarily settled down long enough for me to spend some time in my stamping room-yeah!! I created this card to share with you thinking of summer and the beach. I love this set-Sea Stamps featured in Serendipity. The collage images are perfect for layering, distressing and aging. I had so much fun coloring too- I used my prisma colored pencils straight up- no blending solutions. To bring out the highlights I used our Xtreme white gel pen- just love it! Really made the image pop! I used an edge distresser on each of the layers of the main image and really roughed it up. I love the texture such a simple technque adds! To fill in the background I used Decorative Corners with Landscape palette ink on the Kraft cardstock base. The sentiment is from Ordinary Greetings. As an accent I put a loopy brad through a large button and tied coordinating ribbons through it. I wanted something nice but not too feminine. This would make a great guy card- what do you think?
