Flourishes - Masculine Card

Hey there Chickees!
Yep... I'm back for a wee bit.  It's been a crazy couple of weeks at work and at home.  Painting the exterior of the house is taking a little longer than usual.

I'll post more later... had a 6.8 earthquake north of us and aftershocks are supposed to happen.  We only felt a little bit here but must head home to check my puppies cuz they are probably scared..

Talk to you soon!!


Back in business.  The earthquake wasn't that bad but I have a dog that sees ghosts and flies freak him out.  Max needed a big hug when I got home haha!

Back to the card I posted!  The image is from Flourishes - What a Catch! set.  I found this set two weeks ago and have been playing around with different colour combinations.  This one ... I like!

There's a fish hook tied to the sisal twine but it moved while I took the picture so the hook end is hard to see.  It's there though!!

The recipe is as follows:
Stamps - Flourishes, Studio G
Ink - Memento Black, Distress - Burlap
Paper - Staples, Recollections, Stampin' Up!
Ribbon - Looks like fishnet but is actually 2 1/2 inch woven that I stretched out of shape.  This one is dark green and gold woven in
Colouring - Copics
CuttleBug - Woodgrain folder
Embossing powder - Crafty Capers glittery copper
Spellbinders Diamond Dies
Pop dots

There you have it!  Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!

Hey Sheree, you have been gone over two weeks!!! I missed you!!! Love the card by the way.

I felt it too. Crazy, reminded my of the Loma Pretia (sp) quake in Calif that I was in - same kind of shaking, or at least it felt like it. Everything is fine though. My pup house and pup are fine.

I posted my first Stampscapes card and I think I might be addicted. It's all your fault! lol!

Anyway, welcome back.

I love this card! I just ordered some of their stamps & am sorry I didn't get this one. You did such a terrifc job coloring it. Any guy would be thrilled to get this! I hope you & the puppies are all safe & you don't have any more aftershocks! I'm glad i live in Iowa!
