Fishing at Sunset

This card was so much fun as I got to play with LOTS of my Copics. I'm not quite sure I love the sunset, but after I futzed so long with it I needed to walk away. Next time I'll try more of a 'halo' affect around the image instead of solid color. It still came together okay in the end. I left the inside blank as I don't have a specific use for the card yet. I like to keep my masculine cards generic so I can quickly adapt them to whatever comes up.

We are to use warm and cool colors that are clearly separated. My warm sunset contrasts with the cool water.
