DV 112 Stripes or Checks

Our challenge at Dream Valley today is Stripes or Checks, or if you like you could use both. We are sponsored by Doctor Digi, and I have used one of their images, Angling Andy for my card.

112 Stripes or Checks
I coloured Andy with a combination of copics (skin mainly) and prismacolour pencils. I also used a shimmery pen on the fish’s scales, but sadly the shimmer wasn’t picked up by the camera.

The diecut is meant to look like fishing net, and is from Crealies’ Decorette range of dies. I made the fishing hooks myself by cutting apart a gold paperclip and bending back parts of it to form the eye of the hook. The feathers are meant to represent the feathers on a fishing fly! Papers are from Basic Grey.

I am entering Andy into:-
