CCEE Goes Fishing

I apologize for the 'flash' effect, making the lower edge a bit bright.
Liz continues as our CCEE Stampers Challenge with week.  Here is her challenge......
Hi, It's Liz again with this week's challenge. The month of August is National Catfish Month. Fishing is a year round sport and hobby around where I live, especially saltwater fishing. So, for the challenge this week, find a fish, or someone fishing and it might make a perfect masculine card for your stash!!
I used a fav stamp from 100 Proof Press.  Just love this fishing silhouette stamp.  I heat embossed the image and then sponging on the water and sky colors.  After doing that I realized how well the colors matched one of my tartan plaid papers from Joanna Sheen.  I added a touch of black, a bit of piercing, and a sentiment from MFT.
Be sure to stop in to see the other fab creations at the CCEE Blog.
Once again I had Blogger issues this weekend, so I am late in sharing my Crazy4Challenges card once again.
(I will be going back to 'fill in color' in a couple of spots on the petals.  My peepers were
obviously not working well that day.)
