You Are My Hero All The Time

Today I'm here with the Polkadoodles Design Team bringing you an interactive card using Winston Goes Fishing from the Winston Bear Collection.  

I've colored him with Copic markers and added the background clouds using a stencil and chalking inks.  In addition, I've also added two flaps in the water that when lifted shows little schools of fish swimming by. 

The checkered paper behind the image is also from Polkadoodles - it's from the 
Winnie Celebration 2 - Papers 1 Digi

I used a thin twine to make a net-tied look on the left of the boat and added a fish hook charm to complete the card and give this fisherman a little extra luck today!

Be sure to check out the other Design Team cards and join us on the Polkadoodles Crafting Challenge Blog.
