Fintastic Birthday!

Congrats to Wanda, the newest Featured Stamper (FS644)! I’ve long been a fan of Wanda’s & I probably could have cased her all week long. I was inspired by THIS card for my fishy birthday card. I kept the layout & underwater theme, but used different images, different colors & added a couple of layers.

After stamping, coloring & fussy cutting all the fish, I dug thru my pile of backgrounds & came up w/ this shaving cream bg. I wanted something w/ some watery colors but not so intense or busy that it detracted from the little fish. For those stripes on the little angel fish I had to use a yellow gel pen to get inside the lines. I added some bubbles & a piece of striped washi tape. Then came the hunt for a greeting. Turns out the one I used was just about perfect. I inked up the top & bottom lines, then used a narrow piece of scotch tape to cover the original A (in Fantastic), stamped, then reversed the process w/ the tape & stamped an I in the A’s place. Some of those clear acrylic doohickies (forgot the name, lol) finished it off.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
