A CHILD'S YEAR

I know this project isn't a real "WOW!", but I haven't quite decided what to do with it. My first thought was to frame it for my niece to put in her son's room. He's still a wee little fellow . . . too young to fish . . . but his daddy and grandfather both love fishing, so I'm sure he'll spend some time learning the ropes. Ha! That's a cute pun for this project! The fishing boy image is from one of ProvoCraft's new Cricut cartridges, "A Child's Year." Mine just came today, and I couldn't go to bed without taking it for a spin. After I cut the image, I didn't like the color of card stock that I had used, so I sponged ink on it. By the time I decided which paper to use, the color I'd sponged on wasn't quite right so there must be four different colors of ink on the fishing boy. In the end, I decided to use a sanding block to lighten him up. Oh . . . I almost forgot . . . the knot is supposed to be a Clinch knot. I searched the 'net for fishing knots, and this was one of them. I hope I did it right!

I love the color combo. Is the plaid hand-made or DP? What about the other color blocks? DP or plain cardstock, sanded?

Thanks, but I can't take any credit for the color combo . . . it's from a pad of K&Co paper.
