Fishy Congrats

July 29, 2016

One of my cousins just bought her first house. So I started digging through my stamp collection and this is what I came up with.



Size:  Horizontal top fold A2 card

Extra Details: I started by dry embossing the teal cardstock on the background. I used a dotted embossing folder from Darice. I dry embossed it three times, offsetting it each time to get a lot of different layers. I then blended some Distress Inks on top of the card stock to help the texture show.

Then, I created the focal strip. I used a bit of masking when stamping but it was pretty basic stamping. I colored everything in with colored pencils. I tried to make the small circle at the bottom of the tank look like a soccer ball. My cousin loves soccer and no home would be complete without at least one soccer ball. I added some ink blending to the edges for added interest.

Lastly, I adhered everything to a card base. I popped the focal strip up on fun foam.
