Skipping Stones Designs SSD75

I'ts Tuesday so that means its time for another Skipping Stones Designs sketch challenge! This weeks sketch is by the talented Danielle Flanders. I used one of my favorite sets; Holy Carp. I stamped the fisherman on the kraft paper and then also stamped him on white cardstock. After coloring in the image I cut it out and glued it in place.


Supplies Used:
Skipping Stones Designs (Holy Carp), Copics (Y15, YR04, YR07, R29, C1, C3, B00 and Blender)


Here is the actual stketch. You can see I took a bit of liberty by getting rid of that upper tag. And instead of a strip of scallop punched paper I used waves. To create the waves I took a 1 inch punch and randomly punched along the papers edge, not worrying about being exact. Waves aren't exactly uniform in the ocean so why should I worry about it, lol! 
If you'd like to join in on the challenge (and catch a sneak peek at 2 upcoming stamp sets) be sure to hop on over to the Skipping Stones Designs blog. Also there is a code for free shipping mentioned on today's post.
