A BIG fish

Hi Peeps!  Hope everyone had a great weekend.  It was pretty cool weekend here in SW Ontario, I even had to turn the heat on just to get the chill out of the house. I'm not ready for this kind of weather, but then again it is fall.

I have a really cute card to share with you today.  Well you know I love the PEEP images and this one is no exception. They are so cute and fun to colour.
The image I'm using today is called Fishing PEEP.

As always I stamped the image on bella's bestest white paper with black memento ink and coloured with my prismcolour pencils.  I'm no expert on the colour of fish, so I just started with some yellow, golds, oranges, greens and then added some french grey for some shading.  The plaid paper is from We R Memory Keeper - Autumn Splendor.  I cut out the image using the wonky rectangles, and since this was the largest die and I wanted to layer my image on the rust paper, I traced the largest die around the outside edge onto the rust paper and then cut it out - there you have it another layer!

This stamp also came with it's own sentiment, which I used.  I stamped the image then cut each line and then layered it onto some orange/yellow c/s.
Added some copper brads in the corners.  I used the clear glaze pen and traced the fishing line a couple of times to make it kind of shiny to represent fishing line. I also added some glossy accents to the fish's eye.

Just a reminder this weeks challenge is a sketch.  You can see it here or on Bloggabella. If you get a chance to play along, email your card to Emily by thursday night.

Thanks for stopping by today,

He's PERFECT Pauline! I love the plaid. I can see one of these being the hubby with a giant camera. :) We had two white herons flying over our house yesterday, just an odd cooing noise and then I saw them. Thought about you guys. Love the PEEPS too!
