Challenge #16 Quirky's gone fishing!

Hi it's Cazzy here and I am challenging you to Go Fishing with us at Quirky Crafts.

 I would like to see anything with fish, swimming fish or cooked, or someone fishing. You may also use pet fish, in ponds or bowls or anything that swims in the sea or ponds, or boats. I think that is a lot of creative possibilities.

If you want to see who won our last challenge please scroll down to the next post or click here.

We are sponsored by Crackerbox Palace, who kindly provided all the images to the team and are providing all three prizes to our top three.

UPDATE: HOT NEWS Vicky of Crackerbox Palace is so pleased with our examples she has put all of the fishing stamps used by the team on sale at 20% off - so go grab a bargain now!

Who provided us with all the fishing images and sentiments to show you today.


1º place: 3 digital images of choice 

2º place: 2 digital images of choice

3º place: 1 digital image of choice

Prize winners can choose from the rubber stamps on 
  and they will be supplied in digital image format.

Now for some inspiration from the team.

First our guest designers.

I built up a layered mini Shadow Box, using the image of this nice fish given by our sponsor Crackerbox Palace.

 I have used the brilliant Fisherman, smiley fish & Trever images for my card all from this weeks sponsor Crackerbox Palace. My Husband loves to fish so this card is perfect for him.

I have made a CAS style and let the image do all the talking.
 I used an MFT Blueprint 14 die for the image mat and an MFT Dispersed Dots Die for the background panel. The image was coloured with my Letraset Promarkers.

Design Team
 I used this great image and sentiment from our sponsor Crackerbox Palace.

For my project, I used this funny "Worm On Hook" provided by our sponsor. Added some real shells.

I used the funny fisherman, with the funny worm and Nibbles the fish, and the Give a Man a fish sentiment. I've added some real twine for the fishing line and some fish charms.

Hi! I used the funny digi Smiley. This fish is great and handsome in his fishbowl. 

I´m so sorry, I´m late. My today´s project is a tag using the Smiley and Teach a Man images, from our great sponsor Crackerbox Palace. This time I used some Silhouette Cameo tools and different printed papers. See you soon!!
