Gilligan's Catch of the Day

Happy Friday!
This little water scene looks kind of like it does outside here. The stupid hot spell broke last weekend but now we're being inundated with rain! Not just the softly falling stuff...more like buckets of it. With all the thunder and lightning to boot. I'm just grateful the leak in the chimney was finally fixed! 

This little guy seems really surprised by his big catch! He kinda looks like a Gilligan to me so I named his boat the Minnow. And like the line in Jaws, "I think we're gonna need a bigger boat!" Anyway, I cut out a boat shape and added some wood plank texture to it. Then cut out Gilligan and his fishing pole. When I figured out where to put him, I used a stamp positioner to stamp the line and hook. No way was I cutting those out! I used a blue rainbow pad and water brush for the water then stamped the waves on top. The greeting was stamped on my "sun" and I added some punched clouds and my happy shark.  The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25. 

paper: white
ink: Ancient Page coal & cobalt, Kaleidacolor blue breeze, Memento dandelion & cantaloupe 
accessories: Spellbinders circle die, Duff wood plank texture sheet, cloud punches, stamp-a-ma-jig

You are amazing at being able to see multiple uses for stamps! The little boy is adorable here :) So, so cute and I love the texture on your ship too!
