Best Fishes

The theme on Cute Card Thursday this week is 'In the water' and I've used High Hopes fish and seaweed stamps for this card. I stamped them on white card cut out with nestabilities and water coloured with Ranger distress inks, layered over another nestabilities scalloped oblong and doodled dots in the scallops with a Sakura silver metallic pen. The panel is mounted on dimension tape over the background of swirly water paper which was in my stash, I don't know the make I'm afraid. I added a sentiment with doodlebug rub on letters, some bubbles with a white opaque gel pen and some star dust stickles to the image. The pretty cord at the top was sent to me by a friend and has a lovely silver metallic thread in it which doesn't show up that well in the picture. TFL.

Back soon,

I didn't know you had these stamps! And this is my first time visiting your blog, so I didn't know a lot of things, like you draw stamp designs too! I'm really impressed! I love what you did with my favorite piranha, I love the colors and the scalloped layers. You are so talented!
