BilmalarnaStampers - Challenge 4 - Happy Father's Day

Hi Everyone:

Would love for you too see my Mimo Fishing card that I made for Father's Day. I used water colour pencils and mineral spirits again to colour him.

I found some fish buttons for accents.

The blue striped paper is sprayed with Sheer Shimmer Spritz by Tsukineko (Silver) and stickled to give a ripple effect the water, trail the fish and to accent the lily pad.

Thanks for visiting.
