Fishing and Frogs

Hello Ai Fans !!
This card is so much my boys growing up ,they would leave to go fishing and always come home with treasures , I never really knew what they would drag home but it was always something , frogs ,turtles and yes even a snake ( YIKES !!! ) So when I saw this stamp I had to get it ,  Boy with Frogs SKU # K1206 can be found in the Ai store along with many other great stamps ,go check them out, I am sure you will find the perfect stamp for your project.
today I colored my image with prisma color pencils with gamsol, I am new to this process but I love to color and with practice I am sure I will get better , I colored the image and added darker shading in folds and creases and around the edges and with I use the gamsol with a paper stump it kinda melts the colors together and creates a very nice look.
I masked off my image and added clouds with chalk ,
 I cut my image out using the new SU Framelits Window dies , I did some stitching around the layers   , the stripe layer was embossed with the SU square lattice folder , I inked edges on all layers with SU soft suede
my hinge tabs were made with SU modern label and word window punches , I added gromlits   , the ribbon was white and I used my shimmer mist to color and added a mini vintage tag

Supplies :  Boy with Frogs sku # K 1206 ,  SU square lattice folder , SU window dies , SU modern lable punch , SU word window , sewing machine , chalk , Prisma colored pencils ,gamsol ,  Clear Star shimmer gel pen , SU vintage mini tag , seambinding ribbon , shimmer mist , gromlits
often I leave the inside of my cards blank to turn the card into what ever I may need later , it's a good thing to have  go to cards that you can stamp a sentiment in and be done.
Thanks for stopping by come back tomorrow for the  Thursday Challenge @Ai
Hope you have an 8UpScrapin day : )
