Theresa Momber illustrated a fabulous new set for Gina K Designs called Gone Fishing. I have never been dissapointed with any of the sets that she illustrated. The images are always incredibly detailed and give stampers the ability to create amazing scenes or simple cards so easily. I was smiling from ear to ear when she asked me to be her guest designer. And I said yes without even knowing what the set looked like. That is because I knew it would be awesome, and it is! :o)
There are so many great images in this set. My favorite is the father and son (or uncle and nephew or grandpa and gandson) sitting on the edge of the dock waiting to catch that big fish. For the first card I am sharing I used several of the images to create this fun scene and I used a sketch from Card Positioning Systems (CPS #163). I tried to embellish the card but still keep it manly. So I cut a strip of burlap and removed some of the threads to create a frayed look. I used some cream colored DMC crochet thread to wrap around some of the corners. It reminded me of rope from a boat. And the sign in the bottom corrner is from another set illustrated by Theresa called Happy Camper. The scene is stamped on Pure Luxury Kraft card stock. I colored it with Koh-I-Noor colored pencils and blended with paper stumps and baby oil.
After leaving a comment to let me know what you think head over to blog of the other Guest Designer for Theresa's new set, Mary Anne. She has a wonderful story that she shared about her brother and fishing.
