Gone Fishin'

Welcome

I wanted  a fishing theme for this card as it was destined for a keen fisherman.


The image was from... I went to look for this and found a lot of my files have corrupted and I am not sure, but think it came from Graphics Fairy, as she has a good selection of Retro images on her site. 


The image was coloured with chalks/pastels, the edges distressed and sponged with Tea Dye DI.


The image panel was mounted over some T.H. Embossed Kraft card, and finished with a sentiment tag and fish charm, before being mounted on the blue base.
