Let's Go Fishing

That's the theme this week for my
 very first
 Design Team card 
(challenge #47)

 Spray the burlap with the home made color (mix acrylic paint and alcohol in spray bottle)
  Base of Kraft Paper is cut 5 1/2" x 5 1/2".  Wave designer paper is cut 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" and attached with ATG
  Burlap is attached to card base with foam tape
  Kraft Paper and mint green Card Stock are cut to size to fit image, distressed and taped together with ATG
  This is where I think it will go.
 The image was completed using colored pencils. 

                                         Faux stitching was done with a brown marker.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Liquid Pearls is added to the outside of the image and the base of the card

Thanks so very much for stopping by and checking out my inspiration this week.
