I did use the Burlap background stamp that we no longer carry - but I think it would look great with the current Birch or Crackle Paint background stamp on page 156 of our Annual catalog too. I had a lot of fun using our watercolor pencils and blender pends to add some color to these rainbow trout - and then using the edge of my scissors distressed the edges of the burlap layer.
Here is how the inside and envelope were finished.
All and all a great card - and I especially love those cattails in the background, as they remind me of growing up in Wisconsin.
I hope you enjoyed seeing this card and got some inspiration - stop back soon! ~Maureen
