Spectacu-lure

Hello!  Hope you had a chance to checkout the latest releases and the new challenge!
Here is what I made using the Reel 'Em In set. 
I printed the image on 90 lb. Canson watercolor paper.
I used Tombow markers and a waterbrush to color it.
I need a better white gel pen that actually works. Anybody have suggestions on a good white pen that actually rolls a white line??
I pulled out my ANCIENT SU hodgepodge hardware!!!  It was the perfect accent this time.
  
Close up of the coloring. The white gel pen mess on the bob is because mine just doesn't draw nice pretty lines.
  
Here's the inside.  Pretty simple inside.

Your watercoloring looks great! And the overall look of the card (layout, shapes, colors) is fabulously tied together! I wish I knew some fishing men so I could try to justify getting this set! :D

I am in love with this set....love the vintage look you have given it with your colors and papers. Beautiful job on the coloring, too hard on yourself, I don't see a thing wrong. Can't give any advice on the white pen, I have yet to find a good one.

Laurie, I have to say this is one of your best yet! Gorgeous watercoloring with such vibrant results -- You are a master-- there is no one better! Beautiful work.

Laurie, this is beautiful! Your coloring is amazing, as is your use of so many of your wonderful images on your focal panel! I don't see any blobs, by the way! I use the Vision Gel Pen, but it seems to work at first, but not after a bit.... Have tried the Glaze Pens too - let me know if anyone gives you great advice!

OMG Laurie the paper looks like leather, your colouring is amazing, and you stitched so perfectly too! I love everything about the card!
