An Italian friend (Emanuele) of mine left a comment a few days ago that he wanted the next card to be with a canoe/kayak theme. I asked Vince to find me some royalty free piccies on the web and when I saw this scene I knew it would be perfect. The print-out sat there for a few days until I came across a sketch from Pagemaps (Becky do Cardmaps too) April 2005 cardmaps bunch. (this link opens as PDF)
I pulled my Deja Views pad Blue Raspberry and found a huge tag with brown and turquoise and a hint of purple...so I used some petal points fluid chalk ink to edge the cardstock and the printed image. I also edged with a tombow black marker to 'lift' the image. finally I've used some newly purchased Derwent colorsoft pencils to color in the canoe and bear.
The sketch wanted a string of some sort and I've used a piece of jute string...completing the tag with an old fashioned feel button.
