Welcome to the April Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop! This month we are featuring The Neutrals Collection with our projects.

A few people had asked me to make some Father's Day cards and the Neutral collection is perfect for them. I had bought the Best Catch bundle from the Occasions Catalogue for scrapbooking pictures of my husband's fishing but it also fits for Father's Day.

I used Shimmery White cardstock for the water, embossed it using the Seaside Embossing Folder,  sprinkled Prussian Blue Brusho over the "waves" and spritzed with water. I left some of it white thinking that it looked like whitecaps on the water. You can see the sparkle of the Shimmery cardstock in the above picture. The fishies were die cut and then embossed using the Subtle Embossing Folder. Love how this card turned out - definitely have to make more cards using this stamp set!
