Trout Fishing

Hiya! Here is a card done with Gone Fishing. This is one I made for the last release party for GKD, so some of you might have already seen it.

I used Copic markers to color the fish, starting with R22.

Then I added YR000.

Added YG91.

Then added YG93.

Filled in the belly with C1.

Then added a bit of C3. After coloring, I cut out the fish.

Cut a piece of Pure Luxury Ivory cardstock with Rectangle Nestabilities, then sponged Desert Sand ink while still in the die.

Stamped the trees on a piece of Pure Luxury Kraft, using Memento Rich Cocoa.

Filled in the foliage with G21.

Then added YG93 for some shading.

I also added a bit of color to the foreground with E33 and G21. I used E33 for the tree trunks.

I used one of the background stamps from Vintage Backgrounds to stamp on the lower portion of the tree layer. I layered with Pure Luxury Chocolate Brown and Baby Boy Blue and used a kraft cardbase. The little fishing pole is a twig from my yard and a piece of wire for the line.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great day!
