Fathers Day part 2

*******************

Again two the same but different.

Both my boys, son and son in law are keen fishermen so the only choice for Father's day is.........yup, you've guessed it.........fishing!"

This is for granddaughter to give to son in law.

Freebie papers from craft mag..



The corrugated circle was packaging and has been treated to a makeover with white paint, cheapo gold paint from Wilkinson's and a slight touch of iridescent medium.




This one is for grandson to give to his Dad. (son)
Freebie papers again. This circle more or less the same as the one above but with less gold and a smear of brown paint 





I know he'll appreciate the joke even though he's never been known to lose a fish, lol.
