Fishing for a Diploma!

I followed the sketch on Friday Sketches to do this Grad card. I need about 15 male grad cards and I think this is a great image to use...fishing for a diploma! I cut out the fish from scraps and hope people will catch on that they are fish. I embossed the Happy Graduation (Rubber Stampede) with Marcasite powder and then used the Crimson Red marker.
The image is a Magnolia...Edwin fishing and the diploma is from a Cuttlebug die. The cap at the top is actually a sticker that I attached to the scalloped circle (SU punch) of the DP. All the papers are from My Mind's Eye. I colored the image with my Prismacolored Markers and I love how the jeans turned out. I used Indigo Blue and then used a blender pen to create the faded sections.

Just a strip of the DP and the second largest long rectangle nestie on the inside for a personal note.
This is one of my first stamps...no label. I embossed it as well and used the bronze and black markers.
I think this will make a great male grad card. It is so hard to make male cards especially for High School aged boys who have grown up in front of you. My how those boys have turned into young adults.
Must go and watch DH outside raking those dead winter soggy leaves. Talk later.
Hugs
Heather
