|Ricky - Fishing Expert|
My brother-in-law is a fisherman at heart so I knew Ricky - Fishing Expert would be just the right image to use for his birthday card. My card layout was inspired by Deconstructed Sketch #180. I used distress inks on the tan panel to create the rays and popped up that layer along with Ricky himself to give the card some dimension. I also love how the stitched cloud-like layer pops against the navy card base. Here's a close-up:
Fridays are always lots of fun but I'm kind of sad because today also marks my last post as a Tiddly Inks design team member. My four-month term comes to an end this month. I just can't believe how fast these last few months have flown by! It has been a lot of fun getting to know Christy and the fabulous girls on the design team. And it's been a true honor for me to be able to share my creations with the Tiddly Inks community. It has been a wonderful experience and I highly encourage you to apply for a spot when the next design team call is announced. I have learned a lot and have enjoyed every minute!
I'm giving a big shout-out to you and Christy, and everyone on the design team -- thank you so much for giving me this opportunity to be involved with the crafting community. I really, truly appreciate it.
Hopefully, I will continue to see you around. I want to wish my brother-in-law a fabulous birthday on Fabby Friday and also to wish you a very happy holiday season before the hustle and bustle of Christmas sets in next week. I do hope you will subscribe to my blog (if you haven't already) so we can keep in touch in the new year too.
