Copics, Promarkers and a Digi Stamp

This is a digi stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil called Fishing, coloured with both promarkers and Copic Markers then mounted with Nestabilities Ovals.
Olive base card and Stampin Up papers the sentiment was punched out using the word window slot punch by Stampin Up.


Attention to Detail...

Lets talk fishing hooks, I needed an embellishment without it being over the top so I set to with head pins, beads and a feather, I added one bugle bead then a dab of glue to the head pin, next added the seed bead onto the pine and slotted a piece of the feather under the seed bead so that the glue and seed bead would hold it in place, I then bent the head pin around my finger and snipped off the excess wire with wire cutter.

You couldn't go fishing with them but I think you'll agree they make a pretty neat embellishment.

Wow Jak, what a great card!
Male cards are so difficult to do. I think this is wonderful, your idea of making the hook is fantastic, just shows what can be done with a mind full of ideas.
Well done.
