Fishers of Men

Hello!  The Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast was so fun that I had to go back for seconds!!  I was inspired by this fishing boat painting.  For my card, I used 'The Waves on the Sea' set and the 'Fishing Net Background' from Our Daily Bread designs.  I started out making it monochromatic, as the painting, but it was too plain, so I changed the color on the banner and added some sponged color to the image panel (which was cut out with the ODBD Custom 'Elegant Ovals' Dies).  The card base was embossed only with the ODBD Custom 'Faithful Fish Pattern Die and Debossing Plate', which, used as a cutting die, will cut out the tiny circles.  I love using this die plate to emboss card bases since it does not warp the cardstock as some embossing folders do...yay!!  I added only linen thread for an embellishment since I was aiming for a flat card which only took one stamp....mission successful!!! :)

Angie, This is just beautiful. I love the softness of color in the sky and the water against the boat. Love that fishnet background stamp as well.
