Gone Fishing

Here's another card I had tucked away in my picture folder from my last box of OWH cards. This image is from Mo's Digital Pencil. She has such a marvelous illustration style. If you haven't visited her  in awhile you will be delighted by all the new images that have been added in the past couple of months. 

I will admit that many of Mo's image are quite detailed and therefore fairly complex to color but even when they don't come out exactly as I had envisioned (which is at least 90% of the time) I always enjoy the challenge of coloring them.

I created the green compass embellishment by simply punching it right out of a printed pattern and then distressing the edge with a sanding block and adding a basic brad. Looking to your patterned papers can be an easy way to get an unusual embellishment that's perfectly coordinated to the rest of your design.

Happy Crafting!

Great Card!
Like the way you colored the shirt, hat & water especially with the addition of the white. Thanks for the reminder to use patterns in paper for embellishments.

I have this stamp from Penny Black, if someone doesn't want to use the digital version. I love the coloring on his shirt!

Very nice masculine card! I like the effect you used for the ripples in the water and overall great coloring!! Nice choices for the banners and great tip for the compass. I always like the texture that jute or hemp add to a outdoorsy or masculine card. TFS!
