Retirement Card

Hello Happy crafter's and a Happy week to ya! Today is a very gloomy day here in Maryland but I can't complain because we had two weeks of sunshine with very little rain. Decides I need to clean and why I am writing my blog post instead! LOL 

I was requested to make another Retirement card for a male who loves to fish! At Mo's Digital Pencil I found this beautiful image called "Fishing!"  how much easier can it get? LOL  When ever I need something specific I go to Mo's for she has a little bit of everything. Also, she has lots of multi-cultural images which I have card orders for! Love her images!

Fishing was colored about 4 times trying to get the sky and water to meet in the horizon. No matter what I tried it just didn't look right. so I did an easy fix! I colored the water immediately next to the boat and chalked my sky. The sky is a little darker in person with pink and purple mixed with it.

  • Copics: Jacket and Hat: E55, E53, E51, E50. Shirt: YG25, YG21. Pants: B95 B93, B91. Pail: C05, C03, C01, C00. Tackle Box: G03, G00, G000, YG01. Boat: E18, E11, E27. E25, E35, E21. 
  • Paper: Colorbok from Walmart!
  • Sentiment Tag: Nestabilites Tag Die. 
  • Sentiment: Stampn' Up mini sentiments.
TIP OF THE DAY:  Digi images! Do you love digi's? They have their pro's and con's. What I do love is it prints out perfect every time so I use less paper for I am not the best stamper in the world!! Any who if you love digi's ...I bet you like them better when they're free! Anne Fenton and Sandi Hugget offer free digi's at The Outlawz Challenge site!  Here is a peak at what Anne posted today!!

You colored it beautifully it gives the feeling of just kicking back in the boat and waiting for the fish to bite. No worries no rushing, fabulous card.
