it's my day on the eyelet outlet blog again, where i'm posing a question to my fellow cardmakers: is it just me, or are "guy cards" harder to make than girl cards? i think they're harder... or at least... i don't seem to get as many lightbulb moments, so I'm always extra excited to find products that do half the work for me, like these completely awesome eyelet outlet fish brads!
seriously, cardmaking doesn't get much simpler than this, does it? i watercolored a bit of ocean, stocked it with fish brads, and stamped a sentiment. job done!
o'course, not everyone loves to paint (and if you aren't into it, don't worry... i'm probably obsessed enough for both of us!) in which case, another great way to construct a water scene is to just tear and layer a few paper scraps. then all you need are some more fish. in this case, some supercute trout and bass brads.
once again, I didn't need much else, so i stamped a sentiment and did a little bit of machine stitching before calling it a day. i made a tall card this time, which i always absolutely LOVE until i have to photograph and edit it, lol!
