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!

A big congrats to Nancy, the newest Featured Stamper! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the fish theme & layout, but used different images, different dies & a different background technique.

My bg was an accidental creation..I was cleaning the caps of my Copic markers by dropping rubbing alcohol in them then letting it drip out. Well.. no way I could waste the ink, so it’s now a bg. I also added some drops of just the alcohol to get a sort of Bokeh effect. Then I added the colored & die cut fish & starfish. I didn’t have a coral branch like Nancy used, so I die cut a bare tree & used some of it for my coral.

Today is Day 5 of Splitcoaststampers Dare to Get Dirty Challenges! And I made this for my challenge & for all the details of the challenge, go HERE…but you’ll need to be a Fan Club member. That’s easy! 
To make my fishy card, I made a background w/ colored pencils & gamsol. The exact technique is part of the challenge which you’ll have to go to the link above to find out. This bg was die cut w/ the stitched rectangle die & I used a larger size to cut the white bg before using a stitched waves die on it.  The cute little fish were colored w/ Copics & their matching dies were used to cut them out. I also used their dies to cut some thin fun foam to pop them up a little. The greeting was added to a chat bubble die cut & I added a little stickles to the sea floor & to the bubbles.

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

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you’ll drop in & join us for Dare to Get Dirty week!
