Best Fishes

I had a great time with this card even though it took me hours to complete!! I got the idea for the pothole in the middle of the night and could hardly sleep after that. I wanted to use Cat's sketch from StampTV on this card also, in all of my fiddling to get it right I got a little off on the sketch I hope it is okay. So about the card the porthole is cut using circle nestabilities out of a copper sheet and then I added copper colored brads, to give it a more real look I distressed it and smeared stazon black ink on it. The blue is some patterned paper from my stash. For the ocean floor I stamped the seaweed and embossed it then I colored it and inked over it with a versamark pen and then embossed again. After finishing that I sponged so saffron and creamy caramel. This is called emboss resist and it is Gina's challenge this week on StampTV. The stamp set is Best Fishes from Gina K Designs.

has some great blog candy she is giving away, so head over and good luck!!

I hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
