Edwin and Tilda Fishing the Day Away Centre Step card

Good morning and welcome for today's Magnolia-licious Summer Bash Blog Hop. If you come from our lovely SHARON's blog, you are in the right track. Otherwise, please go back to the Magnolia-licious Hightlites Blog to start your hop. There are prizes for this blog hop too.

PRIZES FOR THIS BLOG HOP:
There are two ways to win for this hop, so please be sure to go over to the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog to check out the rules details and following are the prize picture(s) for the random winner that emails the phrase correctly---it is $100 worth of goodies PLUS 5 Mini Magnolia stamps of their choice AND a Scor-Buddy—that’s a lot of fun!! Second prize goes to someone who does a project and they get 2 stamps from Diana’s store of their choice.

For this blog hop, I prepared a center step card. I picked images from Magnolia-licious Store for this card today. Since this card theme is related to fishing, I picked Edwin Waiting For Fish and Tilda Gone Fishing. Then I wanted to set them in an outdoor scene. I altered the background stamp and add a mini lake area to attach it the background stamp. In addition, I added some glossy accent on top to create some watery effect. I also used some embroidery thread to replace the fish line on their fishing rods of the stamps.


Here are the closer view of these images.


And the closer view of this background image with a little free hand cut lake. I colored the lake with copic marker BG10, then applied the glossy accent on top to make it look watery.


I poked a hold and let Edwin's fish rod through the hole. For Tilda, I created a little hook using a thin wire and wrapped it to the end of her rod.


Closer view of some of the embellishment I used to decorate the left & right side of the card front

Side view of this card


View of the inside. I made a pocket and made a tag to tuck inside. Added a fish rod from Jolee's Embellishment.


Closer view of the inside. The tag on the left side picture and I added some acrylic letter to form "Fishing" to match the theme.


MY LETTER IS: “R”
Now please hop to the next blog “ANGIE” to see more inspiration and collect another letter! When you are finished collecting the letters you will put them together to create a 3 word sentence. Find contest details at the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog HERE! Thanks for joining us :o)

Patti aka NW Lady said...

I just love all your added little extras that make this card a treasure. Like the fishing line going through the water, the sheen on the water with the glossy accents and I love that little hook. I think it's neat how you added the inside pocket so a sentiment could be added without destroying the look of the card. Wonderful! Patti
