A Fish and A Flower

>> Wednesday, May 30, 2018

It is great fishing time here in Alabama now.  My Son-in-law loves to do night fishing and takes his young son fishing all the time.  They loved this card.  It was super easy.  I stamped the new Let the Adventure Begin Greeting and the Jumping Fish image.  Then I did a few brushes of water color wash across the page.  I stamped another fish and fussy cut him out and sponged around the edges with distress ink (sponged around the edges of the card panel too).  I added a bit of Stickles to make the fish look more real. 

I need to get more Christmas cards done too so my next card is a Christmas card.  I made it by swiping ink on some aluminum foil and misting it with water.  I placed my paper in the ink and let it dry.  After drying, I cut one panel for the card and stamped on the Christmas Especially to You Greeting.  I then stamped the Giant Poinsettia image three times on the left over paper.  I colored the flowers a bit more with Alcohol Markers.  Then I spread on some gel medium and sprinkled on glitter.  I like the gel medium because it gives the flower more texture than glue.  I layered up the flowers cutting out the leaves from them and tucking them in the bottom.  I added three gold gems in the middle. 

Hope you are having a wonderful week.
