Whimsy Inspiration - Gone Fishing!

Hi Everyone!
I have Whimsy inspiration for you today!

For this card I inked up this sweet image called 'Gone Fishing' from our fabulous new Whimsy artist Lee Holland. You can find all of Lee's gorgeous new stamps right now at the Whimsy Stamps store.

The image is coloured with Copic markers and the sky is shaded with chalks to create clouds.
 

The sentiment is called 'Sun-Sational Circle Sentiments' and is also Whimsy Stamps, but unfortunately is an older set and no longer available at the Whimsy Stamps store... but you could try other retailers.


The papers are from Sweet Shoppe Designs 'Carolina Coast' digital kit, and all edges have been sponged with Frayed Burlap Distress ink.

I finished with some Kaisercraft flowers and pearls.

Hope you like it!
