here fishy fishy

there's something cool about fishing
i like the relaxing waiting for the fish to bite part and then the frenzy that is the catching part
and finally the story telling part when the big one got away lololol

 here's a cute fishing card i amde suing punch art, stencils and brayering
 the fish was relatively easy to do

 i know because i made a few lol
 i used a 13/4" circle punch, ornament punch and 11/2" circle
 cut out the tail using the circle punch and cut a circle in half
hold onto the leftovers for the fisherman's hat
 attach tail and eye (save that other bit for the hat remember?)
attach half circle to fish
colour in eye and use a white gel pen for scales and a green marker for a cheek
then the fisher man
 you will need that leftover bit from the ornament punch and the petite pennant punch and the xl oval
 punch out as shown only taking a little bit of the scalloped triangle
 you should have this
 snip the scalloped edge off and attach to large triangle to make a nose
 remember that ornament bit leftover from the fish?
 cut the top bit off it for his hat
 then stick the other bit for his shirt
 trim off the edges to make it look better

i added a sentiment at the top using the word window.

to do the background i used a brayer and the scalloped edge punch as a stencil.
i used daffodil delight card and brayered on pistachio, cabana, turquoise and indigo
i punched out the trees from the merry litle bits punch set and stenciled them on with some gumball green.
all the details were done in marker

cheers ears
