How about something masculine on a fab Friday? I was so excited to see that Marcy remixed a number of her masculine images in the fishing theme. I think they are some of her best masculine illustrations, so I was very excited to use them again in digi form! This one is called Leaping Trout and oh what a beauty!
I really had a great time colouring this one! First I printed the digi in a slightly lighter grey so it would soften the edges a little. Then, I looked up what rainbow trout look like (as I am not a fisher-person), and tried to mimic some of that colouring in the design. I also found some old fishing themed paper from Kaisercraft - Hunt and Gather and thought the papers worked really well here.
I sewed the layers together, added some copper string, a paper button and some brads to finish it off.
Inside the design I added a strip of the fish paper and a punched out sentiment piece also found in the paper pack.
Isn’t this a fabulous digi set? And there’s two other fishing themed digi sets too, Fly Guy and Reel Deal. Marcy really outdid herself here and all of these images are perfect for that guy in your life, or for Father’s Day coming up quickly!
Here are the Copics I used...
