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.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

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.

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.

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