Bildmalarna Challenge 10 – Father’s Day

There is a new challenge starting today at Bildmalarna challenges and it was my turn to choose the challenge. Since Father’s Day is fast approaching that is what I chose. 

Here is my creation.

I used the adorable Mimo Fishing for my image. Isn’t he just too cute?

I used a sentiment from one of my Stampin Up sets, a fish charm and a button that says Gone Fishin.

My DP is the new Tim Holtz Lost & Found paper stack.  I love this stack as you have 12 x 12 and 6 x 6 sheets in one pack and they are dimensioned by the size so these little bottle caps are not too big for this card. I poked holes in the card and then laced through some cream colored twine.

For Mimo I used the following Copics:

  • Skin: E13, E11, E00, E000, R20, R01
  • Hair, net and pole: E29,E27,E25, R27
  • Clothes: R27,R24, R22, B97, B95, B93, B91, G3, G2, G00, YR24, YR21, YR20

This card also fits into the following challenges:

  • Color Throwdown – brown, gold/yellow, olive, tangerine, blue (I think these are very close)
  • Incy Wincy – buttons (gone fishin)
  • ABC – V is for vintage (Tim Holtz paper gives the card a vintage feel)
  • Tuesday Taggers – It’s a man’s world
