Is there something fishy?...

Father's Day forced me to make some 'angler's cards', as many Fathers like to angle in their free time. I was inspired by the DYSU challenge and this photo:
But it's the colours of water that inspired me most. So the card came off like this:
 I used three colours of blue to present the sea water, as well as the structural paste to make the surf.
The angler is 3D, his fishing rod is a tooth pick and the fish is a charm. I'm not really proud of the colour of his face, I need to buy some other markers (these are the school markers). Anyway I think he got his suntan patchy and this is the version I'm gonna insist on ;)
The text says 'Succesfull catches!'.
If you would like to catch some fishes for dinner, the boat leaves here:

Great fish charm. And I love the texture of the foam on the water! A little trick I learned about using school markers, if you color first in pencil crayon and then marker, it evens out the color better and protects your paper too. Thank-you for sharing with us at The Poodles Parlour!

Aaaaa, thank you so much Barb!!! I already tried using pencil crayon ON the marker but it didn't work... I didn't know I should do it in reverse order ;) thank you so much for your advice! Hugs xxx Anna

Hi Anna - this is such a lovely card. The colour combo is fab and you've put such details on your card such as the surf texture and the fishing rod and charm. Thanks for coming over to Lexi's Creations to join in with our current challenge.
