It was THIS big

Doodle Pantry is sponsoring the challenge at Digital Tuesday today! The challenge is to use anything that you wouldn't normally use in crafting, like something from the kitchen or outside) I am using 50lb fishing line that I normally use when I make my bracelets and Robin gave me one of his fishing hooks. I just finished this cigar box and Robin brought home another one, sweet! Note to self: take a photo of my project before I spray with fixative! It was really hard taking a photo because of the shine from the spray even though I use matte. I've also entered this into Cards for Men, which is anything goes as long as it is new and for a man and Stamp Something, which is to use a digi stamp.

Stamp: Doodle Pantry Bass Fish
Paper: basic black, always artichoke, whisper white, apricot appeal
Ink: tempting turquoise, morning marigold, dustry durango, cajiun craze, cherry cobbler
Other: prisma markers, MS border punch, dew drops ribbon, creative memories corner rounder, 50lb fishing line, fish hook, stampin up dimensionals, wallpaper (the entire box is covered in wallpaper
