Perfect Day for Fishing

I had already coloured this image some time ago and came across him on my desk when I was tidying! When I looked through the DCWAV Pocket Full of Posies paper stack I recently bought, I thought this paper was perfect for this little chap sitting happily fishing :0) The image was coloured with distress inks with a little touch of Spica glitter pen here and there. The fishes were coloured with the Spica pen and mounted with silicon. I created the sky effect with sky blue chalk ink pad, gently dragged across the surface. I then cut the image with my round nestie die and a second slightly larger layer cut with a scalloped circle nestie. I added small papermania sparkly gel dots to the scalloped layer. The sentiment is from Whiff of Joy and this was cut with a small oval scallop nestie. The blue rick-rack braid was perfect to suggest water/waves. A very simple layout with only one piece of DP, but I think it works quite well :0)

This card is great. Not only is that little guy adorable, but that paper goes perfect for the fishing scene. I have that paper but have wondered what I would do with it. Great idea. It looks like waves of water!!!
