FSC Has Gone Fishing

 For this month’s challenge FSC has “Gone Fishing” which the lovely Yvonne picked as her theme.

It’s a long time since I have just sat down and coloured in with my Tombow and Marvy Le Plume Markers but that’s exactly what I did with this card.

Can you believe that in all my collection of stamps the only two fishing themed ones that I have are the same as my teamie mate Dot.

She put her card into the FSC gallery before moi so I decided to totally change direction with my piece.

The ole grey cells really had a work out with this theme … (wish the body could say the same).

Totally pleased with the outcome plus sooo relaxed and chilled after the colouring session, even Andrew liked this one.

Phil who comes to my crafting classes lent me the ‘Gone Fishing’ stamp … thanks Phil.

The rocking chair is from Art Impressions as are the grasses and little flowers.

Mr Bird is from Hobby Art but the hat and boots is an Impression Obsession stamp.

Would really love it if you hopped on over to see all the DT’s work as they are simply stunning.

Ink Art Designs Etsy Shop is sponsoring FSC and they will be offering a stamp for the winner of each new challenge.

    Hi Shirley. So sorry for using your original choice of stamps! But … what an absolutely gorgeous card you came up with instead!!! Absolutely nothing wrong with those grey cells of yours. Mr. Bird looks like he is looking for his friend. And I had a little chuckle at the sign. In Andrew’s case you could have a sign saying ‘Gone golfing (again) hehe. This is a very beautiful card Shirley with the colouring so expertly done .

    Sometimes it’s such a push in a different direction that helps us grow our creativity. Your chosen image is both a good Fishing illustration and delicately coloured for a tranquil effect! Plus you have the male vote… xx

  4. Hi Shirley! How funny! I too have the stamp you gifted to Dot! I LOVE your card! The soft details draw you in. I would never have guessed this was a struggle for you! It all came together so naturally. Hugs, Yvonne
