Wouldn't this be a fun non-traditional Valentine card? The stamps are more from WHIPPER SNAPPER DESIGNS, designed by Anna Wight. The Fish is "Feelin' Fishy" and the sentiment is from "All things with Love." Both are new releases from Whipper Snapper this month.
I stamped the fish and sentiment on watercolor paper using Versamark. Then I embossed with Antique Gold embossing powder. To color the image I used Tombow markers and a wet brush for a watercolored look. The images and sentiment were cut out with Spellbinder Nestibilities dies and mounted on a fun Velum print that I found at Michaels. I added some machine stitching and some crystal brads in green to carry out my non-tradition Valentine colors to match the fish. That's all there is to this card. Easy-peasy!
I'm sad to report I'm still freezing here. Spring is nowhere to be seen. We've gotten more snow this week and while today is a clear, sunny, blue sky kind of day, the temperature is below freezing! Brrrr.... Come on SPRING!
Until next time,
