Cooking With Cricut Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome to Funky Cards

Today is Day Two of the Cooking With Cricut Something Old, New, Borrowed, and Blue Blog Hop.  Today's blog hop is being hosted by Melin at Cooking With CricutIf you arrived from Felicia's blog, you are in the right place, if not, head back to the Cooking With Cricut home page so you don't miss a thing! 

We are creating projects using something old- (*Everyday Paper Dolls Cricut cartridge), something new (*canvas), something borrowed (*boat from Going Places Cricut cartridge modified and used with the fisherman from Everyday Paper Dolls Cricut cartridge), and something blue (*background paint).    *My project

Happy Birthday Grandpa!!!
I really enjoy mixing paints and papers.  So this project started as a blank canvas and using five different colors of paint, the water, horizon, and beach were created.  Textures were also introduced by embossing the boat using the Cuttlebug.  Ink was used on the boat and fish to add highlights and a gel pen finished off the fisherman and fish with extra color.  

The "Birthday Wishes" stamp is from the Pink By Design Vintage Stamp Set.  It originally said "Kind Birthday Wishes" but since I only wanted the last two words, I carefully inked the stamp and any ink that got on the word "Kind" was rubbed off prior to adding the stamp to the project.  You could also tape over the word, but in this case the word was very small and I chose to just be careful and it worked.
