Fishing Plaque

This creation took a little time in making, three days actually.  The wood plaque is something I had on hand, I got it at either Michael's or JoAnns, I don't know which anymore.  I then stained it, which took two days, what with the actual application of the stain and the drying, and the second application and the second drying.  I love the golden color that was the result though.

The images are from "Outdoor Man."  The mountain lake background image is on page 35 of the handbook.  I cut it at 6."  I inked the edges of everything with different colors of Distress Ink.  Faded denim for the mountains, tumbled glass for the lake, mowed lawn for the trees, and walnut stain for the tree trunks.

The fisherman image is on page 34 of the handbook and it was cut at 3."  I inked the boat with tea dye Distress Ink and the water with tumbled glass Distress Ink.  I also covered the water with glossy accents.  I made an actual fishing line from some brown and white baker's twine.
