Best Fishes

Happy Monday! Here is another card I shared at the Gina K release party last week, but hadn't shown on my blog. I used the new Best Fishes set and the new digi paper, Sweet as Sugar.

I stamped the seahorse on the lighter yellow digi paper and the fish on the red, then cut them out. I added just a bit of shading on the seahorse with my Copic markers and used my aqua painter and a little bleach to add highlights to the fish scales.

The starfish and seaweed were stamped on Gina K Pure Luxury card stock, colored with Copics and cut out. The background was sponge. Some layers were cut with my Labels One nestabilities and circle nestabilities. Finally, I used my Stardust Glitter pen to add some shimmer to the images.

Thanks for coming by today. I'll be back tomorrow with a tutorial on those little candy holders I showed during the release party. Have a great day!
