My husband loves to fish that's why I chose this image. It reminds me of him. I colored the image using Prismacolor color pencils. I colored him with my husband as inspiration, trying to be as close to what my husband wears when he fishes. The thing is, he usually wears black especially when it got cold and he was still trying to fish. Coloring in black is no joke. You have to try to preserve the image lines and create a bit of shading here and there.
To create the polaroid cut, I combined two metal dies, Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle die and Lawn Fawn Stiched Square die. I made sure that the distance of the square to the edges is even on both sides and on the top side. I created this cut on a Basic Grey patterned paper.
I created a ground for my image so it doesn't look like he is floating in the air. I die cut a brown card stock using a die from Avery Elle Custom Panels Elle-ments. I adhered this to the bottom of the image. This panel is adhered to the back of the Polaroid panel, cutting off the excess.
The largest SSS Stitched Rectangle die is smaller than an A2 card. I adhered a We R Memory Keepers woodgrain washi tape around the edges to create a border. I adhered the Polaroid panel to this using foam adhesive. I adhered a gold die cut heart to the hook using foam adhesive.
I scattered some Nuvo Dots next to the image to fill in that big space behind the image. I could have created a scene behind him but I was aiming for a simple card. I adhered star sequins next to the sentiment as last embellishment.
