Sitting on the dock of the bay....with video

watching the tide roll away...? I don't remember haha

The Monday Challenge over at Simon Says Stamp is: go fish.

Now I happen to have this Crafter's Companion rubber stamp: Popcorn the Bear and he's fishing with his little mate. I thought it to be quite fitting for the challenge, although I just checked and I can't find any Crafter's Companion stamps on SSS.

I used Talens ecoline to watercolor the image.

I stamped it on cold pressed 140lbs watercolor paper this time (usually hotpressed) and I used Versafine black onyx ink and my MISTI.

Was planning to use another sentiment at first, but wasn't quite sure where to put it, so I left it until the end.

Then I had to mask off the bear's head so I could stamp the Happy Birthday from Impression Obsession, to make it look like it's behind the bear.

I could have stamped it on the inside, was contemplating it too, but I do much prefer my sentiments on the outside and all nice and blanc paper to write on on the inside ;-).

Mounted the panel with foamtape and as it's narrower I filled the gap with washi tape on the cardbase.

Bit of Wink of Stella on the fish so the shimmer.
