Inspired by a book or a book cover , DT card for FFF.

Friday again and time for a new challenge at
Fairy Fun Fridays!

Hannah is hosting today and she wants
you to be inspired by a book.

I think it is a faboulous theme.

I also have some exiting news for you.
Roberta has been a busy lady lately and
made a lot of new images.

They are not to be found in the shop yet but
during next week or so, they will be available.

But you can get a sneek peek, because the Fairy
Princess has made some wonderful cards
this week with some new digistamps.

I have been inspired by this book - well to tell the
true the inspiration was the other way round.
I saw Fisherman Lewis, and knew at once that
he was my man. (Don't tell my hubby.)

Then I just had to find a suitable book!


"Getting started fly fishing!"


Fisherman Lewis, isn't he handsome?
The papers are "Archaic" from Basic Grey.
Great papers for a man's card.

Embellishments are from Basic Grey and Tim Holtz.


The text on the tag is computer generated, and
means directly "bad fishing luck".

Used the same way as "break a leg".

This is my first attempt to make
clouds as background.
Bev has made a cloud template
and a great tutorial here.

The inside with space for a regard.
I tried to make it look like a photo
with photo corners.

The backside a bit like the front.
As always.


I have used this sketch from Sunday Sketch & Stamp.

Challenges:





When my card was almost finished I decided
to add some Glossy Accent on
Lewi's glasses and on the water.
So I did, and after a while I was going
to take some photos for the blog.

Big surprise!

By a mistake I had added Crackle Accent!
Look at the poor guy's glasses!

After a while I managed to laugh, and started
printing and colouring once more.

So Fairy Prinsesses, that was why I was a bit
late with my card this week.


Take care!

  2. haha...Sikke da et kort med forhindringer.
    Det er nu ikke så tosset med bagvendt inspiration. Det er da et skønt stempel, så heldigt du fandt den bog.
    Egentlig synes jeg, Lewi ser noget nørdet ud - og med de brilleglas blev han da helt kikset....haha. Og så blev de også pludselig røde....
    Fint indlæg som jeg morer mig over, og så et flot kort at glæde sig over.
    God weekend - og pas nu på hvilke flasker du tager fejl af...

  11. A brilliant male card and a fantastic image too - well the sentiment does say 'Bad Fishing Luck' so you could've got away with smashed (crackled!) glasses!
