Fish in Blues & Greens - Stampin' Up! A Fish & A Wish

    Yesterday after I had gotten through a few business-y things I had to do it was time to check out some challenges to play along with.  The Just Add Ink theme of "Under the Sea" and the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches seemed perfect to pair up.

  I used a lot of blues and greens for this birthday card and enjoyed using the retired Sea Bed embossing folder.  It's very detailed and blending the ink onto it with blending brushes really makes it stand out.

   I stamped and adhered the fish to vellum circle which I covered in clear Wink of Stella for a subtle shine.  The sentiment is from Vintage Tools and is cut apart and popped with dimensionals.  A few Fine Sparkle adhesive gems are sprinkles across the card front for some more subtle sparkle.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
