Teddy Bo's Gon Fishin!!

Well, sadly  I haven't found anything else that had gone missing whilst continuing my blitzing of my craftroom.

I managed another two DT cards for whilst I'm away yesterday afternoon and evening - when I looked at them this morning I just thought 'What a load of rubbish!!' and took them apart, so I decided to do something totally different - hence the Teddy Bo. I had already coloured the image and decided to use him for the Teddy Bo challenge which is a fabulous sketch by the lovely Kathy.


Teddy Bo is coloured with Copics and I used the Copic watercolour technique for his clothes and wellies as I wanted them a Khaki green and the only two available colours are G94 & 96 which are a little dark.
My papers are Basic Grey's Phresh and Phunky, the blue circle is cut with a Joy embossing die, and the bottom border with an EK Success punch. Th little buttons are the tiny center pieces from a Nellie's Multi frame which I thought I would never use. I cut out 4 layers for each button, stuck them together and coated them with Glossy Accents. I use wire through the holes and the little 'Gone Fishin' sign is computer generated and I couldn't resist adding the little whale - I do have a fish charm but thought the whale would be more fun.
 I've struggled photographing this, after keep moaning it was too dark, today my complaint is it's too light LOL.
It's a very harsh light which is altering the colours - never content am I???

Love the blue circle - really makes you think of cold water & the whale isa beauty; sypmathize wholeheartedly with pulling cards apart again & the light problem too. I don't think we can ever win, it's part of the temperament. Hope you have a good weekend.
