Posts Tagged ‘fish’

It’s my pleasure to host the first Inspiration Challenge of June (IC757)! And such an inspiring site we have w/ Design Pool & their Pinterest Boards. THIS is the picture that inspired my card. 

I have a card today w/ most of the fish going one way & the one fish going the other. Doesn’t seem to bother him…he’s smiling! I think that’s probably me, lol. My mom always said I have a mind of my own & growing up, in order to get me to do something, she had to make me think it was my idea. Anyway, for my scene, I stamped the background fish w/ teal ink onto some turquoise paper that had been spritzed w/ a little bleach. I added just a touch of color to the fish. The main character was was stamped on white & fussy cut. I added a little stickles to him & to the stamped bubbles. The porthole was die cut (yay! I found a die that fit!). On the teal bg, I embossed it w/ a wave folder & some of it cracked, revealing the white core. So I just went w/ it & sanded off some of the high points to reveal the white. 

The greeting was split w/ half on the front & the rest inside. Below it are the Copics I used.

A big Congrats to Karen, the newest Featured Stamper (FS688) on Splitcoast! She has a fun, colorful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I liked the brilliant blue color & fish theme, so I kept those. But I used different images & dies & changed the layout.

This fun greeting cracks me up & the first thing I said when I read it was “we need a shark image” (or a bigger boat, lol). So the folks at Rubbernecker showed me this shark & I loved it. I colored the areas that needed it then used my out of the box technique to have him coming out of the circle. I put the layered circle w/ the shark onto a larger cobalt blue bg & die cut the different waves at the bottom to add on top.

Here are the Copics I used:

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC708) we have Converse shoes. They actually have a colorful, fun site & I was inspired by THIS pair of shoes. I love the rainbow of colors.

For my card, I first white embossed the mermaid tails & little fish then used Distress reinkers & a waterbrush  to create the rainbow of colors.The paintbrush was used to float in water, a section at a time, then drops of the reinkers were added. I made another little scrap like it to use for the die cut the “Happy”. A little splatter, some sequins, the stamped rest of the greeting & done.

Here’s the inside..I did a little masking to recreate the Fintastic part.
