Isabella's Sketchbook Challenge # 12 - Honoring Fathers

Welcome Wednesday!
This week's challenge at
  Isabella's Sketchbook is to create a project honoring Fathers! I used Isabella's image DAD

sometimes making a card and having it look simple...is actually really its own challenge (-:
I wanted this card's image to have some depth to it, like your peeking in at them fishing

Copics were used on this one. Used a reverse mask so would stay inside lines to create the land and water for the fishermen - colored with YG 63,67, B24,29 and Memento's Summer Sky. Masked the center image and airbrushed the light beige with E33. The D's were colored with E17, 37. The twine ribbon  (from GKD) was cut down to 1/4"., brads from stash. Matted onto GKD's Green Apple onto SU's Caramel that had been texturized with CB folder onto black cardbase.

Simple, right!!! actually, it really was - dont know why I'm whining  - wait til you what the members of the Design Team created over at Isabella's - they nail these challenges every week!
so are you ready to join in the challenge? Pop over to Isabella's and grab the beautiful new badge for your sidebar and while there - pop over to her Digital Boutique and grab the freebie while it lasts! This will also be entered in the challenges over at:
