Fishing Buddies

It's a new challenge over at Die Cut Dreams today, and our theme is "Animal Antics", of the four legged variety. There's a great prize on offer from Crimson Cloud, they are offering you a "Tatty Button" stamp, and they are gorgeous. The rest of the team have done brilliant creations for you to get some inspiration from.

For my card I have used a Whimsy image that I won a while back and never used yet. I even did some sewing, I used a needle and some crochet cotton and put some fishing line on. Now how about this for total lunacy, I had coloured my image including the water and then had a sudden urge to try the cloud technique, I did use the tutorial on Bevs blog. But this is where madness takes over, did I have a try first on some scrap paer, Nooooooooooo! straight onto my image, thank goodness it turned out OK. In fact it fits in quite well with this image and i'll be sure to do this technique again.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:-
1. Allsorts - week 12 - Free & Easy
2. Ladybug Crafts - challenge 35 - Summer Birthdays
