Lucky Lures

Do you have any lucky lures?... I remember as a kid I loved this big flat red lure that had a white stripe down the middle. I thought this would be a fun gift idea for "Dad".
I used my various ink refills from copic to sponge the outside of the tin. I used E15 and YG95. I colored my fisherman image with copics and then matted him with Archaic patterned paper. I love the new acrylic charms that Tim Holtz has put out. I inked the backside with YG95 and then stamped the "F" in stazon on the front.
The staging of this photo was kinda fun....this is the fishing pole I would use as a child when I learned how to fish....looking at it makes me smile as I remember how many times my uncle had to untangle my reel....
