Happy Birthday Fisherman

Here is a card I made for my husband's birthday using the current Deconstructed Sketch (#160).  He really likes fishing so this cute little Fisherman Luka {retired} image seemed just right.  If you are a long-time blog follower, you may remember that I try to use new techniques and/or folds whenever I make a card for my hubby.  This time the technique was distress marker/ink water coloring and adding my own background around the image. 

I covered the hearts with Glossy Accents for some shine and popped up the image panel.  I gave the bucket a coat of Sakura Glaze Pen. His buttons were accented with a white gel pen. Of course, I had to finish off the front with faux stitching. 

Tim really likes when a card has interior decorating.  Sentiments from three different stamp sets were heat embossed for the interior sentiment. 

Cardstock:  Strathmore Watercolor Paper, Recollections
Patterned Paper:  My Mind's Eye - Miss Caroline (Dolled Up 6 x 6 Pad)
Stamps: La-La Land Crafts (Fisherman Luka), Stampendous (Birthday Wish), Mark's Finest Papers (Dogwood Blossoms), Lawn Fawn (Woodgrain Backdrops)
Ink: Stazon (Jet Black), Distress Inks/Markers (various), Versamark, VersaFine (Onyx Black)
Tools/Embellishments:  My Mind's Eye enamel dots, Lawn Fawn Lawn Cuts (Hearts), My Favorite Things die (Pinking Edge), Recollection Fine Detail embossing powder (clear), Stampendous Opaque embossing powder (white), Glossy Accents, Sakura glaze pen, Uni-Ball Signo white gel pen, Staedtler fine tip marker (brown)
