Gone Fishin' with The Paper Players

Hi, friends! This week the amazing Ann Schach is hostess at The Paper Players, and she has chosen The Great Outdoors as our theme challenge. That leaves quite a bit of room for interpretation, and I had lots of ideas.

I envisioned an outdoor activity, such as camping or flying a kite, and was sad that I had no stamps for either. I really need more stamps :) Then I remembered this yet un-inked stamp set from My Favorite Things and I was happy again! I had great fun creating this little scene, though I must admit it took me two sittings to get it all done. The little girl, her bff kitty, and the fish were colored with Copic markers, and her shirt and the water paper-pieced. 

I gave a little inky love to the inside of my card too, with the coordinating sentiment, a couple more fishies, and a scrap of paper. 

You know I love my challenges! I'm playing along with two others today, the sketch at Mojo Monday and the Summer theme challenge at Simon Says Stamp.
