Challenge #402 at Shopping Our Stash is "Gone Fishing"

The new challenge at Shopping Our Stash is "Gone Fishing" we want to see a fish, sea-creature or a fishing theme. I used a never been out of the package Stampscapes set called Lakeside Cove (small)  it is an 8 piece set and I've had it at least 5 years and I was very intimidated by it, so I made a background with distress oxide inks and stamped my scene on it.

The scene was stamped in black on the blue background, I went a little overboard on the flying geese so decided it would look better in the oval. Really hard to tell what colour the card is but it's very dark navy and silver.  Since the object of the challenge is "fish" I'm pretending my canoeist is heading to the cove to fish.

Close up of the canoeist, I'm sure I will get much better using these fantastic stamps, I do have my eye on a couple more that will be great for the set. clouds and water ripples, now to find them.

Thanks for stopping by today and check out the great "fishy" cards the rest of the design team have made, then head to your craft room and make us your idea of "Gone Fishing"

This is a super impressive scene you've created!
I am with you, it totally looks like that canoeist is heading out on the water for a spot of fishing!

Such a pretty scene! I laughed when you said you framed the scene because you went overboard with the geese! Your finished product is beautiful.
