I love this little guy. Not sure about you but men's cards always cause me a problem.
I made this for my Uncle's 65th birthday he is a keen fisherman.
I stamped the Lili of the Valley image and coloured him with my H20s. The DPs are from my stash. It has been distressed with Tim Holtz Distress Inks Antique Linen, Tea Dye & Brushed Corduroy.
I made the fishing fly from a jump ring which I bent into a hook shape. I then took the threads from a gold organza ribbon and tied them to the wire. I added a green feather and then wrapped the remaining frayed ribbon around the feather to keep it tight and finished it off with some green cotton. Not sure how well it would work at catching fish but it looks cute on the card.
I then plundered my brothers fishing tackle box and added fishing line with lead weights. My little brother (I say little he is 29) tied the line to the spinner for me ( he informs me that no self respecting fisherman would tie them in any other way) and there you have it !
I hope you like it !
I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:

Hi. My name is Penny. I have many obsessions in my life from cake making to papercrafting.
I live in lincolnshire in the middle of nowhere and so have many hours to craft.
Eddie my gorgeous house rabbit does not share my passion for crafting instead he prefers to eat most of my DP's.
Hope you enjoy my blog.
