Birthday Fishes

I recently ordered some Paper Smooches stamps (because I don't yet have enough stamps, LOL).....they are just so damn cute - hard to resist.....



But anyhow this set came in handy for this weeks Paper Smooches challenge. The inspiration picture is below - subtle stripes in blue, yellow and soft pink. I used the fish from the set Birthday Buddies, stamped it in Versamark and heat embossed it in silver - those jars have a silver lid. I made a mask for the fishes and then used a Memory Box stencil to sponge the stripes waves. I colored the fish with Copics - stripes here as well. 


 You see the silver embossing better on the oblique image, straight on it looks like black ink.... 
Added the sentiment and bubbles (with glossy accents) and a jute bow. this is a one layer card, which qualifies it also for the A Blog named Hero challenge - which is collaborating with Paper Smooches right now

I will also link up with KIS - add a bow
Seize the Birthday - Twine or String on a birthday card
CASology - Pet - we had guppies for quite a few years

So much for now - thank you all for visiting and have a great weekend!

OOOhhh wie schön!!! Beim ersten Foto sieht man gar nicht, dass du Silberfische gestempelt hast. Beim Anblick der Karte wird einem gleich etwas kühl ums Herz - bei dieser augenblicklichen Hitze sehr erfrischend.
Schönen Sonntag, LG

Hallo Cornelia, ich freue mich, dich als neue Leserin begrüßen zu können,
herzlich Willkommen :-))
Deine Karte ist super süß mit den Fischen! :-)) diese Stencilschablone ist ein genialer Hintergrund dafür, habe die Schablone auch aber keine so süßen Fische. Die "I want" Liste wird immer länger... ;-)
LG Manuela
