Another Fish Story

Gone Fishing

To begin with I coloured the image with Faber Castell Polychromos
Next I used vellum with a water design to cover my base card and then sprayed it with blue Shimmer Mist.  For the mat behind the image mat I stamped a fishing scene with black Memento several times and embossed with both black and clear embossing powder to give lots of texture.
I used a fishing basket and fish button as part of the embellishment.  The fish button was coloured with silver paint and a blue Promarker then I added some fishing line through the button holes.
The card fish were cut using the die Fishing Fun by Joy Crafts and then I used three fish made from clay which I coloured again with silver paint to make my shoal of fish.  A very simple Happy Birthday sentiment was added to the bottom of the coloured digi.  I did have a wee accident with the image lol, after chalking the background and putting to one side I had moved onto the embossed mat and did not realise I had black ink on my finger - yep, you guessed it, when I picked up my coloured image I accidentally put my mucky finger on it.  Oh what to do and then looking at it I thought it was rather cool, my finger then when into my black stamp pad and I added more finger prints. What fun I had and the end result is pretty cool hahahaha.
