The One That Didn't Get Away

Welcome

This is the second card I taught this week, and we tackled the 'dreaded masculine card', and conquered it.


We started with a piece of embossed kraft paper from a Tim Holtz pad I brought years ago, which we sponged with Distress Inks - Broken China, Spiced Marmalade and Bundled Sage.


The fisherman image (a Kiwistamping Image)was coloured with prisma coloured pencils, and the fish painted with grey Kohinoor watercolour paint and over painted with Oyster Twinkling H2O's.


The sentiment was embossed with copper embossing powder, the panel sponged with Spiced Maramlade DI, and adhered to the side of the image panel.


The final touch was this starfish charm, attached with some pearle thread - you can see the embossed paper behind the charm.
