Under the sea: Fish stamp birthday card


Summer is the season for going to the seaside! Inspired by the sunny colours in the art work of Lauren Alexander, I used bright colours for the fish and also added some Shimmerz, to let it stand out from the blue background. The shimmery effect doesn't show up very well in the photo unfortunately.

I also stuck on one of those moving eyes with eyelashes - voila, a female fish!

The ribbon is from a reel of rather expensive knitting yarn from a specialist shop. Of course it goes a long way in card making.

Challenges: Sunflowers and Dragonflies, Crafty Creations, Friday Sketchers, Creative Inspirations, Creative card crew, Papertake Weekly , The Sweet Stop , Sunday sketch and stamp, Daring Cardmakers
