I wasn't really posting on my blog at the time and I had forgotten about it. When I was making this card I was really trying to work on background techniques.
This cute guy is a digital stamp from Sassy Cheryl's. I LOVE her images. This is a really old image and I don't believe it's even available any more however if you are looking for a "fishing style" image she has many new one's to choose from.
Because I found this card in the archives I don't have the Copic colors used to create it. I can tell you that the boy was colored with copies and the background was done with chalks and colored pencils. The little puddle was done with Copic and then I used my white gel pen to highlight it and then a little Glossy Accents on it to make it look wet.
I really like creating backgrounds on the card that the image is printed on. I've been trying to build up my courage to do it more often. I'm always afraid I am going to work forever coloring my image and then mess it up when I try to do the background. And sometimes I do!
Sandy Allnock is a pro at creating backgrounds on her cards. She has a great Youtube channel and blog with lots of information. She has inspired me to try backgrounds more often. I've been practicing!!
Have an Amazing day!
