Something Fishy - but not smelly


Welcome.

No, I have not fallen off the face of the earth - I have not been able to comment the past few days as "real life" has been somewhat hectic.. hopefully it will be quieter soon and I will be able to visit - I miss you all.


This was made for a keen fisherman - the image stamp is from Kiwi Stamping, (The folk who introduced me to this addiction hobby.) He was coloured with Prismacolor pencils
 

The background is watercolour paper with Lindy's powders sprinkled over wet paper, and also sprayed a silver shimmer mist, and the die cut layer was cut from some silver sparkle card.


The fish was painted with Iridescent Blue H2O's.


The watercolour paper was a tad small for the card base, so I doodled around it with a silver pen.  The sentiment was embossed on a hand cut banner.

I am linking this to:

(A fish is an animal???)

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog - may your day be blessed

That shimmer is going to remind that fisherman of scales on a fish! So pretty and a wonderful masculine card.
