It's Fancy Friday and we are show casing our favourite Occasions Catalogue products today.  We are a group of past and present Artisans who love to craft together and bring you inspiration on the last Friday of every month.

I have to admit, I am partial to a good "Guy" stamp set or bundle.  While I am not a keen fisherman (fisherperson?) myself, I certainly love eating them!  The Best Catch bundle is perfect for quite a few  men in my life and had me channeling my inner watercolour artist!

I created the background on Shimmery White cardstock by "painting" a combination of Pool Party and Coastal Cabana inks on my largest Clear Block and then spritzing with water and laying my paper directly on top to get this cool watery effect.  Once dry, I stamped random bubbles in the same inks.
I Googled Rainbow Trout to see what colours I could paint this little fella and love how he turned out!  I painted the Fly in the same colours and using the Catch of the Day thinlits, I was able to layer these on my background in a flash.  Adding a few Iridescent Sequins finished this beauty.

Next up on this magical mystery tour is the amazing, divine and incredibly talented Rochelle Blok in Australia.
If you want the supplies to recreate my project, I would be delighted to be your demonstrator.  Click on the pictures below to shop my New Zealand store 24/7!


  1. Great card, Paula! You’re colouring is fantastic!

  2. Just amazing Paula! I love the way that you can get the look of texture on a single layer of cardstock and your colouring is just outstanding!! You are one clever lady! Thanks for sharing! Rochelle xo
