After going through my Google Reader last week (gosh it gets filled up quickly!!)...I came across the Hand Stamp Sentiments blog and their current challenge is to use pleats or ruffles. I thought that would be a fun challenge. In my head, I decided I wanted to use pleats as ocean waves (not sure how that thought came to me) - so then I had to find a fish stamp in my stock. I found an Impression Obsession stamp and thought it would work perfectly. Before I go on more.........here's the card:
After coloring the fish with my Prisma pencils, I played around with the layout. I used my Cuttlebug swirl folder for the water and then did the pleating for the waves. I grabbed my Lawn Fawn letter stamps and stamped out the sentiment and then added a balloon. The balloon and fish fins are all covered with glossy accents, but it was a rainy day when I took the picture, so this is the best one I could take!!
Here's the details if you want to play along. Entries are due TOMORROW at noon!
Hope you have a restful Sunday!! Go Giants!! (that's for you Honey!)
