Gone Fishing...

Hi folks...Simon Says Stamp very kindly sent me the Beachy Waves Stamp to play with...
from their latest release... Good Vibes
you can check out all the fabulous stamps, stencils, dies etc from the release HERE available to buy  now.
I made a "Gone Fishing" card which reminded me of  happy times spent fishing with my dad. Whatever we caught, usually rainbow or brown trout, we cleaned, threaded on a stick, cooked over a wood fire and devoured with relish.
I inked the stamp with Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch and Broken China Distress Oxide ink, wiped the ink back from the circle and inked that with Fossilized Amber. I spritzed the stamp lightly with water, stamped on to Distress Watercolor card and flicked on some droplets of water. I inked the fish images from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Sea Life with Black Soot Archival, stamped on to scraps of card coloured with the same Distress Oxide inks and fussy cut. I then stamped the foliage from the stamp set with Peeled Paint Distress Oxide ink.
I cut a slit in the card with Tim Holtz Craft Knife, roughed up the edge with Tim Holtz Paper Distresser, fixed the fishes in place and added white highlights with a Sakura Gelly Roll pen.
I applied Ranger Multi Medium Matte to the bottom of the panel and sprinkled with Prima Mini Art Stones. I tied twine around the top of the panel, added detail to the circle with Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide ink and the Splash Layering Stencil and added Label Letters for the sentiment.
I finished off by adding Glossy Accents to the fish eyes and lots "air bubble" dots to the background and matted the panel on to an A2 white card blank. Have fun whatever you're doing today and I'll see you all soon.
