Gone Fishing!

One of our friends is 50 tomorrow and his hobby is fishing. I took these pics and then decided to add more detail, but I thought I would still share them.

I thought the hook should have some bait on it.

For the inside I stamped some fish on shrink plastic coloured with chalk and after shrinking, hung them on nylon thread added a basket and some reeds

a close up of the fish. I decorated both sides of the card inside and added more decoupaged fish similar to the outside of the card also reeds etc and didn't take pictures :-(


  1. This is just amazing love the fish inside with the S/Plastic they look fab abd the hook and bait!!

    Well what can I say Tony will love it!!

    Love Chanelle
