Father's Day Fishing

I made this card for my dad for Father's Day.  He loves to go fishing and will get a kick out of this card.  I used the set from Digital Delights called Gone Fishing.  The fish are from the Bucket of Fish and the hook is from the Bobber and Hook background. The pictures of the stamps are below.  I changed the size of the bucket image to get the different sizes of fish.  The whole fish is the one that is not in the bucket.  The half fish is the first fish head down in the bucket.  I then cut the hook out of the circle.  I stamped Dad on a piece of paper and tried to cut it out like a worm.  I already know my Dad's response - yep, the fish swim all around my worm.
I had no idea how to color the fish so I copied the colors of the Bucket of Fish colored stamp.  I also used my Atyou Spica Gold sparkly pen on the whole fish.  In person they have just a little sparkle - kinda like real fish.  I had so much fun making this card.
