Birthday fishes

Hello everyone! Sorry to be MIA this last week. I was busy opening a new location and worked double shifts all last week to get it open. Now that it is, it's time to relax and get creative! Here is my take on three different challenges today.

Stamps are from Simon Says Stamp. I stamped the fish in My Favorite Things Hybrid black ink and colored with Copic's. The small gold fish are heat embossed using gold embossing powder. Sorry about the bad pun there!

The water is done using Faber-Castell gelatos with water and a brush. I just scribbled some gelatos on an acrylic block, spritzed it with water and painted it on. I did kind of smear over the lighter colored fish and turned it green so I had to go back and add more yellow.

Adding this into the Less is More one layer challenge of "masculine", Just us Girls trend challenge of using gold and CASology cue card is repeat.

Thanks for stopping by!

I never do real well with one layer cards but this is too cute. Fish are really in now - and you did a very nice job with these little swimmers.
