Gone Fishin’

Time for a brand new cue word challenge over at CASology! This week? We’re going fishing!

Where did this cue word take me?  Fishing, of course!  Warm days are here to stay now and I see lots of people out fishing every time I’m near a pond or river!

Stamps:  Prima, Paper Trey (sentiment – Tiny Treats Valentine)
Paper:  Paper Trey cardstock (white)
Ink:  Memento (Tuxedo Black)
Accessories:  sequins, heart gemstone, red Copic marker, foam dots, cloud die (MFT)

I used dimension on this clean and simple design as my main tool.  The cloud and little boy are both popped up with foam dots, but different thicknesses.  I added a trio of tiny sequins and colored a clear heart gemstone with a red Copic marker for a little pop of color.  Where did this particular idea come from?  Think of that Dreamworks image you see at the beginning of some movies where the little boy is sitting on the moon, fishing in the sky!

Don’t forget to visit the design team members’ blogs and leave them a little love this week!  They’ve been working hard to create some inspiration!  Then, remember to link up your own FISH creation on the challenge blog by Sunday at 4:00 p.m. (CDT)!

Have a terrific Tuesday!
