The One That Got Away

This ATC combines a few techniques to make it a great catch. The paper is embossed with the CB usin the circle pattern to give the impression of bubbles in the water. That is always a sign of a sure catch, right? The embossed strip of paper behind the fish was inked with black ink to give it some nice variation, as well as draws the eye to the “one that got away.” The fish is stamped on glossy paper and then colored with white crayon in places that I desired the ink to resist. After coloring the desired places white, I smeared a green and blue ink over the image which gives the fish it’s underwater color. You can see where the image was colored white because it resisted the green and blue ink giving it some nice white detail. The ATC was finished off with an inchie of a little boy who was proud of the fish he DID catch. Over on the left side of the card you can see fishing line tied to a hook made from jewelry wire. Sybil, this ATC is also heading your way, thought this might make you happy for the theme of “boys.” Enjoy!
