Fishy and Bright

>> Wednesday, June 14, 2017

Today I have some playful cards to show you. 

The first one is a bit fishy!

To make the fish, I stamped the new Sandy Mermaid image three times and sponged on some color.  I cut out the bottom half of the image and made it into three fish tails (don't you love to do stamp surgery?).  To make the background, I used acetate smooshing which is my favorite technique this week.  I then painted up a piece of corrugated cardboard for the ice chest/box.  For a sentiment, I used the Sun Shine On You greeting.  I love how this card came out - simple and fun. 

On the next card, I used some super bright colors to make a cheerful retirement card.
To make the main panel, I stamped the See You Later Alligator image several times and then sponged on all kinds of colors.  I sprinkled on some water and then mopped up the excess water with a paper towel.  I then sponged on a bit more color in spots where it looked faded out. 

Next, I stamped the Polka Dot Flower Trio image a few times and colored some of the flowers to match the panel.  I also stamped the Three Butterflies image and added two of them to decorate the sentiment panel I made using God Bless Retirement.  These colors represent my happy thoughts about retirement.  I am only a few years away!

Hope you enjoyed my fishy and bright cards today.
