Happy Fathers Day

Father's Day is approaching and I have a had a few requests to make fishing cards. My dad is a keen fisherman too so I might just have to use one of these for him too!
I used the What A Catch stamp set from Flourishes to create both cards. This first one features the fishing hat which I coloured in with copic markers and hand cut out. I used papers from My Mind's Eye's Milo collection. I don't often like the look of yellow on cards, but this  yellow is the perfect tone and looks great with the kraft cardstock.


For the second card I kept with the kraft colour theme but used orange with it for a brighter look. I coloured the fish with copic markers, and added a bit of sparkle with the "happy" die cut in silver glimmer paper.
