Let's Go Fishing for Friday Mashup

This week at the Friday Mashup Cynthia has a color challenge for us, plus she'd also like us to create a card with a hunting or fishing theme. Perfect for an Alaska girl! My family doesn't hunt but we love to fish and just got back from a fun trip to Valdez Alaska, where my husband and boys caught enough silver salmon to feed me through the winter! (I'm the only one in the house who enjoys salmon, the others don't know what they're missing!)

The colors to use are Marina, Espresso and Wasabi. These are SU colors but you can use any brand you want as long as the colors are close. I used one of my favorite stamp sets from SugarPea Designs called Great Catch and created a little scene of him standing along a river bank with rolling hills behind him. I added some clouds in the top portion to distinguish it as the sky. I don't know if I really needed too but what the heck, I did it anyway LOL

Make sure you head over to The Friday Mashup blog to see what the rest of the DT came up with and then play along with us!

Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  • Create a project with shades of Marina, Wasabi & Espresso.
  • Create a project with a Hunting or Fishing theme.
  • or Mash it Up! and create a Hunting or Fishing project with the colors above. 

Who wants some salmon? These spawning salmon are in various stages....some dead, some close to death, and some in there are ready to be caught and end up as someones dinner:
