Digi Bells Blog Hop for July

It is time for another Digi Bells blog hop and this month I'm the first stop on the hop, so you should have arrived here from the Digi Bells blog.  If not, you may want to start there so you see all the details.As always, our blog hop is a chance to welcome a new release digi from the amazing Elizabeth Bell...This image is another oldie, reborn as a digi, specially brought out from Elisabeth's Archive. It is called "Gold Fishing" and it is such a beautiful image:

My husband has a fish tank and while we have never had the kids trying to fish in it, some of my cats sometimes try. I have a lilac Burmese, Hugo, who used to try and help my husband clean out the fish tank until one day he fell in the tank and realised there was water in it.

For this challenge, I decided to make a clean and simple card using gold as my inspiration. I added the blue frame to tie in with the little boy's jeans. Here is my card:

I printed Gold Fishing with my Canon inkjet printer onto Copic Xpress Cardstock and coloured the image with Copic Markers. The Copics used are as follows: skin: E11, E00, E000, E0000, R20 boy's hair: E57, E55, E53, E51, E50, boy's clothes: B37, B34, B32, B91, B95, Y15, Y17, Y11, YR23, girl's hair: E39, E37, E35, E27, girl's clothes: B95, B93, B91, B97, R01, R02, R05, R24, kitten: C5, C3, C2, C00, fish: Y17, YR04, B00, Y26, Y23, C2, C0, C00, stool:E53, E27, E25, E21
