Sittin' On the Dock of the Bay

I love this song by Otis Redding and when I saw that this was the challenge over at MDUC I was very excited. I saw Kaiser had realesed a new range last week called "Hunt and Gather' one of the papers is covered in fish and I knew I had to track it down to go with Fishing Edwin. I started colouring him last night and when I saw this challenge this morning, well it all fell into place. So here is Edwin sitting on the dock of the bay!I am also entering this card in the Just Magnolia challenge which is Holiday Fun. Fishing is my eldest sons favourite thing to do when we are camping so I am actually going to give this card to him.
I have used the following Copics to colour Edwin
Pants- B95, B97
Button- E43
Skin- E000, E00, R20
T-shirt- C1, C3
Rod- E25
Float- R27, R37
Water- B000, clear Spica
Poles- E31, E33
I used the new Kaiser paper Fossick and the DP behind Edwin is also from the Kaiser 'Bird Society'  Paper pad. The tickets are also from Kaiser. I asked my husband for a fishing hook and he had silver, but Tom had red in his fishing box, perfect. I was also really pleased with the pier that I drew myself for Edwin to sit on. I also loved the way my water turned out it looks like ripples!! I also added clear Spicas which is really hard to see on the photo but it looks amazing in real life. So I am also entering this card in the Mad For Marker Challenge which is to use Spica.
