One got away

Good day

It is Friday and it is the beginning of a long weekend in South Africa. A lot of people are on their way to do some fishing this weekend. This is Gus Fish Whisperer, though he doesn't look very satisfied with himself and I think like all fishermen he too, probably have a story of the biggest one got away....once again. I did a different shape this time. Used a Grand Nestie Label one for the bottom part and repeated the shape on the front with a corner punch. Coloured it with H2O and did some chalking on the background. For fun, I added a fish brad from my stash.
