Fishing 2012
It is time again for the challenge at The Outlawz at Twisted Thursday and for this week the challenge is ANYTHING GOES WITH THE TWIST OF SPORTS.  The challenge ends on May 30th so we would love to see what you can come up with. The stamp I used is from Northwood's stamps , the fishing pole is from Lasting impression and the birds are from Stampscapes. I did mask my image I used Eclipse sticky adhesive. Stamped everything with Memento Tuxedo black. I distressed the edges and I used 4 of each color on the corners and 2 blue ones of brads. I have found I never use brads anymore so I’m trying to use then more as I have so many. Created the background with distress inks and  sponge's, the colors I use are mustard seed, wild honey, scattered straw, bundled sage, forest moss, stormy sky's, tumbled glass and chipped sapphire.
Fishing markers These are the copic markers that was used to color the image. Tried some twinkling H2o’s iridescent blue to give the fish a fishy look not sure if it even helped. Added some white liquid applique and heated it a little so it would bubble up some to give the look of some waves. Used some diamond glaze from Jude kins to give a shinny look on the water and the fish.
Fishing side 2012 You can see the fish a little better now with the close up but I’m not sure if I like it or not and I tipped with a little white on the branches to give them a little highlight.
