It’s release day at the Ellen Hutson shop!! The new Leading Ladies family is growing once again and my favorite part of this release is the Little Gentleman. He is the cutest!
For today’s card I created a little father/son fishing scene. The fishing pole and fish are from the Leading Gentleman set. That’s one of the fun things about all the accessories for these sets, they’re interchangeable!
I cut down some white cardstock to 4” x 5.25” and then masked off the upper portion to create a grassy area. Using my foam blender I colored the bottom of the card with some Distress Ink in Mowed Lawn. Then I masked off that lower section and used a cloud stencil to create some puffy clouds. I like to use Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass for my cloud background. It’s a nice, soft blue color.
CARD TIP: I like using the heavier cardstock for the die cut images when I’m not popping them up with foam tape. It’s a personal preference, but I like the way it looks.
Then I colored them up with my Copic markers. I used a lot of yellow on this card (I listed them below), I think I’m really missing the sunshine right now! *laugh* This dad and son pair were dressed similarly for this special fishing trip!
I adhered the completed layout to the front of some 80lb Neenah Solar White cardstock. Then I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Clair Ink in Nocturne and cut it out. (Probably the ONLY ink I use when I’m stamping sentiments in black. It’s amazing!!) I adhered it to the card front with some foam tape and called it good!
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope this Little Gentleman finds his way into your heart. Happy crafting!
