Fishing Birthday

Here's my 2nd card for today. More paper and stickers from The Paper Studio. This was a pack that I got when I first started in card making. I've also had my Metallic Art Pencils from Stampin Up for quite a long time, I guess these were waiting on the shelf for just the right project. It all came together today when I found this free digi download on Cards For Men. The artist is Claire from Hope Jacare. I've been a big fan of hers after she had become a follower of mine and I went to visit her and quickly became a fan and a follower. I just love her style. These metallic pencils were perfect for this fish. I colored with light green and shaded with a blue green then blended all together with Windsor and Newton Sansodor(low odour solvent),filled in scales with gold gel pen and redotted the black dots with a fine point sharpie pen. I do believe he's a very handsome fish. Thanks Claire for the free digi!
I'm starting to get the hang of digi's so it's starting to be more fun.
