Welcome, thank you for calling past today.
I had a brief time in the studio, and I needed a thank you card for a friend and I wanted a 'fishy' theme.
I wanted to use a digital image as my time was limited, and I ended up with these dragonfly images that I won from The Crafty Purple Frog - I was not all that confident using them, but I was happy with the result.
After cutting and layering the images on foam dots, I decided to use a dark blue base card, and then a green over that - I trimmed the bottom of the green with some fancy scissors to mimic waves, and layered it so that the silver embossed sentiment was on the blue.
I still wanted a fish image, and decided to use this stamp from Hastings Rubber Stamps, and simply stamped it twice with versamark ink, decided that the images were not visible enough, so then sprinkled over some yellow pearl-ex, and brushed it off, and I was satisfied :-).
Why the need for a fish image? When we moved to our home five years ago, there was one fish in the pond, we thought. We then discovered that there were five fish with the appearance of four baby ones. Unfortunately over the last few years three of them have fallen foul of the local feline population, so the remaining two have lived in a watery 'Fort Knox'.
Today my friend let me take a couple of her fish to keep my two company - we have named them Pepper and Salt - Pepper because it is so very red, and Salt as there are white markings on the other.
