Make a Splash - Masculine Birthday

There is another biweekly challenge opening today at Color My Heart Color Dare #355. This challenge ends on Wednesday evening, August 21, 2019. The requirement is to select at least three colors from the grid below and create a project for the challenge. Black and white are considered "free" colors. I selected substitutes that best represent all of the colors. (Candy Apple and Goldrush were blended together.)

One of my brothers is a fishing enthusiast so this card will serve as a birthday card for him. I hope the fish look like Rainbow Trout. Onto a card base a panel of brown cardstock was adhered, then a panel of white. I die cut the cattails and colored them, then adhered them. Next, the two squares were die cut and stacked, then adhered with foam tape. One of the fish, which had been colored with markers, was adhered, again with foam tape, along with the sentiment. A few droplets were added. The inside was decorated with the second fish and a die cut sentiment, "Make a Splash."

Have some fun with us at Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #355!

  1. I love that fish! The cattails at the bottom are a great addition to your card. Placing the glacier against the espresso is awesome - it makes the fish stand out so well! Nice!

  2. What a great masculine card! I love you fish with the cattails!!

  3. Wow what a fantastic card for a fisherman! Great use of the colors. That fish and the cattails are amazing!

  4. That fish! That cattail die! But for me...I love the sentiment inside!

  5. You really did a great job on the coloring of your trout...a trout-out to you. Great border on the bottom and scattering of sequins enhances your masculine card.

  6. Oh, love the die cut border! That's fantastic and is perfect with your fish image. Great card! :)
