Daring Cardmakers Challenge.

Over on Daring Cardmakers the Challenge was to make a Card with a Fish or Frog on it. I have made an ATC, I hope that counts.
I used Acetate to stamp the fishys and then waited patiently for it to dry. Mixed some glitters to look pretty and gave that to the big ones as bodies, coloured the rest in with Sakura Metallic pens.The wee ones are on shrink plastic to hide where i glued the acetate down. I stupidly put some glue on the middle and it has splodged the fin on the bottom one. Oops. The water is some pastel paper which I distressed and then washed with a metallic pen. Finally I used my new clear embossing powder to make the Gone Fishing sign. Hope you like it.
  • ATC
  • Pastel Paper
  • Acetate
  • See-D's Stamps
  • Shrink Plastic
  • Embossing Powder
  • Ink Pads Metallic Blue and Black
  • Sakura Pens and Glitter.

Don't know what to do for the rest of the day, I have just been pottering about with the embossing powders, acetate and the pens to see what I come up with. Saving my energy for tomorrow as Tom is getting a new bed so all hands on deck to sort out his room.
