Gone Fishing

Mo'sfishingcloseup

This week at Mo's Digital Challenge the talented Lisa is hosting and she
chose the theme Birthdays.. I used Mo's incredible Fishing image.  This
image brings back so many great memories of growing up and fishing
with my dad. 

I am also adding this to the SCS challenge today that is to use or create
with something new..I used 2 new techniques..One is sponging a scene
that I saw on Michelle Zindorf's blog and the second is the easel card.  Love these..

I created an easel card..It is my first one. Then added my image that
was colored with Prisma Pencils and GooGone.  I sponged the water
and sky with Summer Sun, Baja Breeze and Night of Navy SU ink. I added
some highlighting with a white gel pen.  The little image I used on
the sentiment and main panel is from 2Redbananas. I added some
hooks from my son's tackle box.  This will go to my Dad for  his birthday..
This image is available at Mo's Digital Pencil Too.

  15. That is a fabulous effect you've gotten with the sponging. I am a bit averse to getting all inky (touch of the OCD's) so don't know if I could do it!! Another beautiful card Dawn, just amazing.
