If any of you know men like I do, their one birthday dream is always to be out somewhere fishing or just in a boat. I know that is at least my hubby's daydream not just on his birthday but everyday. This card was inspired by that manly dream.
I watercolored the image using Stampin' Up inks and added highlights with a few Archival inks I have. I'm truly in love with the way the image came out. Every time I look at it I have to ask myself if I really did color it. LOL!
The background is wood grain embossing folder that I ran my Watering Can and Coffee Archival inks along the folder itself before embossing on kraft card stock. Afterward, I sponged with various Stampin' Up inks. The kraft card stock I have is a really cheap one from Hobby Lobby but I love it for doing the wood grain embossing folder because it already has so much visual texture and graininess.
