Best Catch for As You See It Challenge #196

Wow! Did this past week ever go by fast! And now it's Friday and time for another As You See It Challenge. This week it's a colour challenge with some colours that would work for either St. Patrick's Day, or for a great masculine card. I decided to go with the latter. I really wanted to work with the Best Catch stamp set again, especially now that I have the coordinating Catch of the Day Thinlit Dies.

Here's the Inspiration Banner for the As You See It Challenge #196:

And here's a close up of how my project turned out:

  • I had started this project at my 2 Day Craft Crop to Aid Refugees last weekend, but didn't get a chance to finish. But my first version wasn't made with this challenge in mind. Even though it was based on Soft Suede and Granny Apple Green, the other green I used was Mossy Meadow, not Shaded Spruce, and I had thrown in a bit of Calypso Coral on the fish and the hat band. Then when I got home and realized it would be great for the challenge with just a couple of changes, I die cut some new backing squares out of Shaded Spruce, restamped and coloured the fish and the fly hook and recoloured the hat band right over top of the Calypso Coral.
  • The trout and the fly hook are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured using Shaded Spruce Combo Pack Stampin' Blends, Granny Apple Green Combo Pack Stampin' Blends, and Light Soft Suede Stampin' Blends Marker. I then painted over both of them with some Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

I hope you'll pop on over to As You See It Challenges over the next 2 weeks and check out our Challenge Blog and then try it on for size! Colour challenges are my favourites!

Some updates on Inventory:
The Bunny Builder Punch is no longer orderable until they are in the warehouse again by about April 15.
Two of the Sale-A-Bration Coordination products are now sold out and no longer available:
Call Me Cupcake Framelit Dies and Hop Around Framelit Dies.

Due to complications with SU's die supplier, they've run out of the Doily Builder Thinlits Dies (item 148553) in North America and they will not be available in the future; this item will retire with the 2019 occasions catalog and because of these complications, we will not be able to replenish inventory on this item. If you placed an order for these dies while the item was on backorder, your order will be filled as soon as possible.

They also anticipate the inventory may soon be depleted on a few additional dies that will retire with the current occasions catalog. The dies listed below will retire and will likely run out before the end of the catalog sales period.

If they sell out of these dies, they will no longer be available to order:

Wonderful Floral Framelits Dies (item 148529)
Rose Trellis Thinlits Dies (item 148549)
Detailed Birthday Edgelits Dies (item 148548)
