Next month I will be needing a handful of masculine cards. I always struggle with these because I just LOVE ribbons, bows and buttons! It sure is hard to create manly cards with these items...hee hee! Well, I did my best! I started with this fun fishing image by Draw Me A Daydream called Fisher Fella. This is such a great line! I love how the face is always hidden behind some sort of image. Be sure and check out the many wonderful digital sets by DMAD over at McMahon Five Designs.
I had fun coloring the fish with my Copics. I used the dotting technique (that is what I call it). I start placing random dots with my lightest color followed by 2 to 3 more darker shades of randomly placed dots. When I have filled in the entire image with different shades of dots I use a colorless blender Copic over the entire image to faintly mesh the colors. I then highlighted a few areas like the fin, gills and tail. I hope you like the look!
