I asked Erin why "fishlips" and this is what she had to say... "I wish the meaning behind my name was somewhat special but the reality is when we got our very first computer I had a 4 year old son and when it asked for a screen name we were making fishlips together....It was easy to spell for him and remember so fishlips was created and it's just been stuck on me...."
This is a picture of my "baby", now 17, and his "fishlips".
He used to do it allll the time!
Erin, I totally understand your screen name!!
So, of course we had to have some sort of fish with lips on our card! I liked the direction mine was going, so I decided (if it turned out) to make it a tutorial.
I had so much fun with this TLC back in December, I just knew I had to use it on this card!
I started by stamping these fish from Rubbernecker on glossy paper, several times then coloring them with Copic markers. After they were colored, I went over each one with my Versamarker and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
Next, I stamped and colored the sea grass from G-Rated Rubber Stamps.
No worries if you stamp over a fish because of the embossing, it resists the ink! All you have to do is wipe it off.
Wipe off the excess ink from your images and you're ready to finish your card!
The sign is from G-Rated and the sentiment is from Rubbernecker. I stamped the sign, then stamped it again on white cs. This allowed me to color in the sign slightly, add the sentiment and cut it out easily and place it over top. I added some silver gel pen to the hook too. I finished the card off with Distress stickles on the bubbles.
You can see what the girls did on our CCEE Blog. We'll send "fishlips" our cards...I sure hope she likes them *wink*
