Patterned Paper and...what's that? Copics? WOOHOO!

Let's face it..."guy cards" are hard to make. I got this great stamp by DogGone Stamps and new it would fit the bill. I colored the fish and worm with sharpies and added some Broken China Distress ink to the background, ya know, like water. I also used the distress ink on the cardstock and patterned paper to tie it all together. The paper is imaginisce and I stitched it down after distressing it. I added dew drops in the corner. The base layer is fantastic, I love Bazzill!
