Just A Fun Post Today!

It's been way too long that these cute fish from G-Rated Rubber Stamps have seen ink! So today I did this card for the Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast.

For the background I used a technique that's really simple yet gives fabulous results! (this was a previous TLC challenge on SCS)
Just brayer or sponge your ink on glossy cardstock, take a spritz bottle with Simple Green (also any other cleaner or rubbing alcohol will work) and spritz your cardstock. Voila! You have a cool background!

How FUN is that!! Then I just stamped the sea grasses and colored with Copic markers. The fish were stamped on white cardstock, colored, given a coat of Shimmerz Angel Wings, cut out and popped up.

These fish just make me laugh, so the sentiment from JustRite Stampers was perfect!

Well, I need to go bake some cookies to take to guild today. Think I'll take my knitting, sit by the fire and.....................probably fall asleep! LOL...

Be sure to check back soon....lots going on the next few days!

Stay warm and safe and as always..............Thanks for stopping!
