Mo's Challenge - Three Colours Brown, Blue and White or Cream

Todays card has been created for this weeks Mo's Challenge, its three colours Brown, Blue and White or Cream is allowed, Ive used this fishing image as I was chicken and decided it was the easiest to colour, in just two colours. Ive used my copic pens to colour with and Ive cut it out with the new Nestabilitie Die No.11 as the picture suited the shape best, then Ive cut a mount out of blue card by drawing around the outside of the die and cutting it out with scissors.
The base card is a 8"x 8" white card with a first layer of dark blue card and one of three papers from the Nitwit collections, its a blue check design, the second and third mounts are two brown check and cream papers mounted onto brown card, and the last mount is a blue pearlescent card embossed with one of Cuttlebug folders.
Ive then positioned my mounted image in the centre and my sentiment on a ribbon die at the bottom on the right with some blue brads. To finish of Ive used some fishing buttons that I found in my stash box.

I love that colour combo, and everyone is allowed to cop out once in a while. I do agree though the water and boat are just obvious for the colours. Lovely.
