Fisherman Silhouette

Hi, I was experimenting with swiping ink pads and sponging to create this fishing scene.
Lots more practicing to do but I'm enjoying playing around with new techniques. Thank goodness I've got some gritty soap for getting the ink stains off my hands!

I've used some of me new goodies again, Joy Crafts Fishing Fun dies. The silhouette is cut from a snippet of black card, and the fish are from a scrap of  inked watercolour paper that had Perfect pearls sprayed on it. I thought it was good for the silver glimmer on the fish.

I'm going to enter the snippets playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

At Cuttlebug Mania, the theme is to create a masculine project with stripes. I used the distressed stripes embossing folder on my base card and also used my cuttlebug to diecut the fish and fisherman.

At Inkspirational, there is a photo for inspiration.

I was inspired by the blues and green and the texture of the water.

Materials used: Joy Crafts Fishing Fun dies; Cuttlebug distressed stripes embossing folder; memento and Versacolor ink pads; sponges; Blacke enamel accents for the fishes eyes; sentiment sticker from stash.

Thanks for visiting :)
