Here is my Recipe!

I loved making this stepper card because of the sunset and this
fisherman sitting fishing when sun is going down reminds me a lot of times in South Africa when we used to go fishing.
I used heavy Hammered card stock as my main card
I used Spellbinders Grand Oval nestabilities for the Orange coloured card 
and Plain Oval for this lovely frame stamp from SweetStamps.com.
I cut the circle in the middle out by hand 

This image is a lovely image from SweetStamps.com
This lovely Frame is from SweetStamps.com

I used Promarkers to colour my Image:
Canary, Bright Orange, Lipstick Red and Berry Red

I made this a stepper card to give this card depth

This is a square die and I cut it into 4 and formed these lovely Images with it.
I have not used Eye Lids for a long time and thought this would be lovely to add.

 Well I hope you enjoyed this project of mine and hope I could be of some inspiration to you!
