Happy Sunday Everyone!
Scroll to the bottom of the post if you are looking for the Blog Candy.
This weeks QUEEN on Splitcoaststampers is none other than Bev Gerard aka texasgrammy one of my talented Rubbernecker Sister's, so I had to take the time to honor her and make a card. To my pleasant surprise I saw that the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges are on so I had to play too!
I loved Bev's Grandpa card and you just can't have to many masculine cards on hand so I chose this card to case.......Here
All of the stamps I used on this card is from Rubbernecker Stamps. I stamped Grandpa w/ Fishing Pole on Kraft paper with Versafine Onyx Black and clear embossed it. I colored him using Brushstix by Tsukineko. I had not used these before and absolutely love them for coloring! I know I colored out of the lines but I am covering it up with my sentiment~ Quite often that is how I decide placements of embellishments and sentiments~LOL. I colored his shirt with Broken China Distress Ink, his skin with Memento Desert Sand, and Aged Mahogany for his fishing basket. I stamped and embossed the fish from The Rod and Fish Set on the image panel to hang the fish from his rod. using a stamp-a-ma-jig. I did it again on scrap paper and colored them with Spun Sugar and Peeled Paint distress inks and cut them out and pieced them on the panel.
I stamped the largest Cat tail from the Cat Tails set with Vintage Photo Distress Inks on Kraft paper for the panel under the main image. I sponged all of the card stock with Vintage Photo with a heavy hand and added dots with a Brown Marker. the sentiment is Rubbernecker's Old Fisherman and I used a 7 Gypsies Clip on it, I wrapped black hemp twine around the largest panel and adhered it with Scor-Tape.
