Hello there and welcome to my stop on the Catherine Pooler Fly Daddy Blog Hop! I’m so glad you’re here!
I had REEL fun playing with this release y’all! As soon as I saw it I just knew I had to make a Father’s Day card for my Dad! (PSA: Father’s Day is Sunday, June 21st this year!)
If you can’t tell was giggling the whole time I was making this!
It started with the idea to add wiggle eyes to the fish and that cute worm in the Fly Daddy set– because oh yeah, wiggle eyes!!
Then I had the idea to let that cute lil worm swing free on the card! So I heat embossed the hook with brass embossing powder and then poked a whole through the top and tied it on with twine!
I hope it swings around when Dad pulls the card out of the envelope!
Before I go I wanted to talk about that background! It was super easy to do — I just smushed some fiesta blue and something borrowed inks right on my desk — J covered my desk with glass because I ruined my last two lol — and then misted it with water and pressed some watercolor paper right in the ink. I left some parts white to kind of look like foam from the waves. Then I die cut it with the new Wavy Color Plate — just love how this turned out!
A little touch of coordinating patterned papers just TIED it all toghether. And how about those Blackfoot River sequins? YES!
