For the top layer I used Nutmeg.  I use the Fresh Air Paper Pack for the background.  I stamped the fly by first stamping in Glacier.  I then inked with Nutmeg and then took a baby wipe to the areas I wanted the Glacier to show and then re-stamped.  I added a bit of the New England Ivy twine and colored a couple of the Clear Sparkles green with my alcohol markers.  The Dad if from the awesome Rad Dad stamp set which is available now until June 30th while supplies last so you will want to grab one!
