Fun sketch today! I think mine morphed just a tad, though. I forgot the one long panel and my circle was so big, you wouldn't have seen it anyway, lol.
The images are brand new today from Our Daily Bread designs. I stamped the fishing boat scene and colored it w/ Copics, purposely leaving the sky a little streaky. I added some highlights w/ a white gel pen and die cut w/ a Spellbinders circle die. I added eyelets and little thread knots.
The net background was stamped tone on tone on the cobalt panel and 2 lg white eyelets and some tied white cord were added. The sentiment was cut out and I used a sm corner rounder on the ends. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.
Julia, your image is so vibrant and is set off so well with the deep blue. Oh, I just noticed the subtle netting in the background. Nice touch with the eyelets and cord. Overall, wonderful masculine card and perfect for Fathers Day.
