Drop A Line

Welcome back to week II of the lovely  CR84FN54 colors. 

When I was working on the colors for this challenge I used two different Mo Manning images to create my cards. 

I used  Memory Box paper in the background.  The image is from Penny Black.  I was so happy to find out that Penny Black is now carrying Mo Manning images too.  I was able to purchase this image at my LSS and love it for the fisherman in my family.

The image is stamped in Ranger Archival ink. The coloring is watercolor pencils and a waterbrush. The background is sponged with dye ink and a few little waterspots to add a little texture.  The EK Success border punch is perfect for a masculine card.

I added a few accents on fish line to emulate a lure. 


Here are the pretty colors (love that they work for masculine or feminine cards):
For all the details on the challenge this week go to the CR84FN blog.
