Gone Fishing

Hello crafters! 
This week we are thinking about all our men and make
MASCULINE projects! Cool, right? 

As always you can win a $50 voucher and spend it

My project is a masculine card made for one of my friends who is 
leaving the company we work together for and since he's a huge fan 
of fishing, this card was made to please him, I hope he'll like it!
I totally drawned into this project an completely forgot to make pics! 
Please just check how I explain the steps taken to make this card. 

The only picture I have made from the process is the fish I made from zero.
I cut a very thick cardboard into a fish shape and then cut it into pieces 
making a puzzles from it. I mage holes with Crop-A-Dile and joined 
the pieces with a leftovers of cables and wires.
My fish has gone through a strong transformation, lol!

First I covered my fish with white gesso, added the grit paste on part of the pieces and a pumice stone paste on others. When the pastes dried I covered the parts with blue, mint and sterling pastes. I added a rusty paste where the holes and cables were just to pretend they were made of rusty metal. 
Then I smeared the salient details with brass paint and pumice stone.
That was only for highlighting the texture. Added turquoise wax too. 

Then I worked on my background with Distress Oxide Inks mixed with 
standard Distress Inks, all in blue shades mixed with beige and browns.
To make the bottom more dramatic, I used Royal Blood Infusions. 
Stamped with Inventors using Archival Black Jet. 
Splashed with pumice stone paste with water, smeared rusty paste 
and added pieces of Tim Holtz Mixed Media die. 

I placed a piece of a fishing red on he bottom 
and glued the fish with gel medium.
