Just wanted to drop you a line for H2H Challenge

I'm working on a few cards for friends/family, and I thought I would share this one as it ended up being perfect for this week's H2H challenge: use at least three shades of cardstock and no patterned paper.

I used the CM 12" cutting system wave to make the waves and the edge distresser on the edges. The little fish is from the Hot Diggity stamp set. It is stamped in Honey, and then I used the blending pen with Autumn Terracotta to do the shading. I did this in stages, letting the ink dry and going back for more color until I got the shading to where I wanted it to be.

For the hook/line I freehand drew a hook and cut it out and used a little piece of hemp secured with Liquid Glass. I also went over the hemp very lightly with a black marker to give it a more distressed look.

It was a lot of fun to put together. Hope you enjoy it!
