STB#4 - Best Fishes

Happy Superbowl Sunday to you!!  Are you cheering for one of the contenders?  Not me - but we'll have fun gathering with friends and watching the commercials!! LOL

Today's card is for Seize the Birthday Challenge #4 - which is to make a 'masculine' card based on their sketch.

This is an Impression Obsession stamp that I cut up and layered.  For the 'water' portion of the stamp - I colored it in with Distress Markers and then heavily spritzed it with water so the colors would blend.
Then I colored up the fish with the same markers and popped him up on top.

I used two Cuttlebug embossing folders for dimension and embossed an IO sentiment in silver.  I added some glossy accents to parts of the fish and the bubbles and finished it off with some stars.

Here's the sketch if  you want to play along! You've got until Tuesday at noon!

Have a great day!!!!!!

Thanks for your visit!

Well, still not getting the posts, I think my email is eating them so will try to just come straight over and check things out! Love how you did the water, I have never spritzed anything! And all the layers look wonderful! Okay, off to see what else I have missed.

Hi Maria,

Hope you are feeling better. I am loving your posts, especially the hedgehog!!

I found a bunch more punches and some stamp sets that I would like to donate to your craft sale. fI will keep them in my car and the next time you are up at GASS I will give them to you.
