Pickles Fishin'

Hi Folks!

Hope you're all ok? Busy, busy, busy at this end still, but managed to get a quick card done for my poor old blog today.

And it IS a quickie!

I decided that a Fishin' Pickles isn't just for mens' cards so I've made this one for a girlie who likes fishing...just like I used to when I was little.

I coloured Pickles using my Promarkers as follows:

Promarkers used:

Pickles: Emerald, Apple and Meadow Green
Eyes: Cool Aqua and Cool Grey 1
Tongue: Antique Pink and Baby Pink
Outfit: Soft Green, Grey Green and Tea Green
Lily Leaf: Pine, Lush Green, Emerald and Meadow Green
Water: Cool Aqua and Blender.
Fish: Cool Grey 1 and 3, Antique Pink and Baby Pink.

I've used backing papers from Just So Scrappy's I Toadily Love You digikit and used my Spellbinders dies to cut out the matting and layering for the topper image.

The ribbon is from my stash, as are the brads (ran out of big pink ones!). The charm was from Ebay and the flowers from Wild Orchid.

The image, of course, is by Heather Valentin and is only available from her Lacy Sunshine store. Anyone else selling Heather Valentin digs (also under Valentin Heather or HV) is doing so illegally and is basically nothing but an out and out thief and a disgrace to the crafting community.

Take care everyone & happy crafting!
