Tomic Challenge NO 3- Summer

Happy Monday to you all.
I'm afraid there's lots of photos to this post!!LOL
There's another challenge over on the TOMIC Challenge blog and this week the challenge is Summer. Again it's not my week to join in really, but seeing as the weather in the UK yesterday was NOT so Summerish, I set too and made this Hanger and had a fab time!!! I got lost in my own little world!!! ha ha

I did originally start painting this Edwin the other day as a Father's day card for my hubby, but didnt quite finish it!! So here he is. I was going to give it to my hubby for his fishing area (The Shed!!!LOL) but I have decided to keep it for my craft room!! Everything I used is from my scrap tray.
I have painted with Distress Re-Inkers on 300gsm Watercolour Paper. For the fence I have used Tim's On the Edge Die-Fence which I have Gessoed and distressed with Walnut Ink.

The butterfly I have made from a coke can and cut out using Tim's Butterfly die. Ive coloured with alcohol Inks and painted with gesso.
If you look carefully Ive even pinched one of his flies!!! It had to be a blue one (I dont think he will miss it!!!hee hee)

Flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts. The bottle is from the Idea-ology range 'Corked Vials' which I have put a fish button in!!

Stamps I have used are
Tilda Gone Fishing and Edwin Waiting for Fish from the Sweet Rainbow Collection 2011
Magnolia Doo-Hickey-Swirl

Thankyou for taking time to visit me
