Grandpa's Fishing Buddies

Happy Thanksgiving to my American readers!  (I've always found it odd that Canadians and Americans celebrate Thanksgiving over a month apart on the calendar...oh well, two days to be Thankful for Family and Friends and even more importantly two days of a yummy meal!) 

Today I have another project instead of a card that I'd like to share with you.  Just like creating masculine cards, I almost always struggle with buying masculine gifts...thank goodness for the invention of gift cards!  This year I really want to focus on personalizing gifts, instead of just pulling out my wallet.  My Father-in-Law's birthday was this past weekend and this was the framed drawing I drew for him; meant to represent our two boys enjoying a favorite pass time with their Grandpa. 

I wanted to share this with you today to show you the versatility of Stampin' Up! products.  This drawing was created entirely with Stampin' Up! products.  I line drew the picture on watercolor paper then colored in the silhouettes with a Basic Black marker.  The skyline and water were sponged using a combo of the following colors:
  • Baja Breeze
  • Island Indigo
  • Not Quite Navy
  • Midnight Muse
  • Daffodil Delight
  • Cajun Craze
  • Perfect Plum
  • Rich Razzleberry
Hope this has inspired you to think outside the box with your Stampin' Up! products - they aren't just for cardmaking and scrapbooking!  Have a wonderful day and whether your celebrating Thanksgiving today or not, take a moment to give thanks for whom and what you have :)

Until next time...
