Best Fishes

Seems like Santa has been getting some R and R and doing some ice fishing before his big day! 

I have a few people on my card giving list that love fishing! They sleep and dream in fishing and yes, ice fishing included. 
"Fishing Santa" paired with the "Best Fishies" sentiment is perfect combo for the person who loves fishing on your card giving list! This card is made for a gentleman so my challenge was to keep it masculine and Christmasy all at the same time. 

After colouring the stamp with alcohol markers and a touch of Prisma pencil, I hand fussy cut it leaving a thin white edge. I added some stickles - not too sparkly or colourful to his hat and set him aside to dry. I coloured his buttons and the reel on the fishing rod with a silver gel pen - gotta get a bit of sparkle in there for Christmas right?! 
Paper from Echo Park's Celebrate Winter collection was perfect for my masculine theme. The sentiment comes as one large sentiment so I masked it and stamped it separately just for fun. 
A touch of a fish net die cut and some matching sparkly gumdrops finish off my card.
