Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there! This is the card I made for my dad; he's an avid fisherman and the last few summers he's spent lots of time in Alaska reeling them in. This image of a salmon seemed like a good fit for a card for him. Not sure of the maker of the stamp, I got it in a stamp exchange with some friends. The background behind the fish was made using alcohol inks and glossy paper. I love the mottled look you get this way - it definitely reminds me of the ocean!
