It's fishing time...Dude!

I made this card to satisfy two challenges today. The Cute Card Thursday challenge for this week was the theme "Schoold out for the summer!" and then I used the sketch from Friday Sketchers. I wanted to use one of my Stamp Shoppe Creations stamps, so I settled on the Dude. Now the next question was how to make him look like school is out?? I found my Northwoods cube that had a fishing pole and fish on it. The only problem was that the pole wasn't long enough, so I added an extra link to the pole and drew in the bobber and hook. Then I took the fish and stamped them two times. I got all the elements in the right spot by using my Stamp-a-majig. I then colored this guy with Copic Markers. I stamped the Endless Creations "Take it easy..." stamp and cut out with the large scallop oval nestabities. I wanted to use something different for the strips, so I used some red twill ribbon and then a strip of blue cardstock that I put through the Tim Holtz's Dot Matrix Texture fade folder. I will have to see what other accessories this dude should have!!
