Father's Day Card.....Mo's Man Fishing

I colored up this image last night and made a Father's Day card for my Sweetie's Dad. He is quite the fisherman, so I know he will appreciate it. Come to think of it...I can't  remember my Dad ever fishing...just not his thing, so I will have to make him a tool card or something...better put on my thinkin' cap quick!

Just a simple layout because Mo's digi's really do not need anything to show them off...they are amazing just by themselves!

I can't remember the last time I made a card with  these colors. I guess I really dug out some Fall type colors and "classic" type alpha's for this creation. This Basic Grey DP is so cool IRL!

I just added a few doo-dads here and there to spruce this up and it was done. A very fun image to color!

You can find Mo's digi's HERE!  This particular image is listed under Man Art and is named Man Fishing...pretty simple to find!

ETA: I was tickled to see this card featured on Susana's Best of Blogosphere! How Cool!

Perfect card for the "Fisherman" in your life. My dad loved to fish but didn't own a boat.

I love the water effect and the shading that you got on the shirt and the boat, they really make it look 3D. Brilliant card.
