FISH LIPS

Good morning everyone.
I hope you all had a great start to your week. I had a very laid back day....a little laundry and lots of card making. LOL.

When I was visiting Cindy Haffners blog yesterday, she had posted a fabulous card with fish. It is for the CEE stampers challenge "Catchy Name Featured Stamper.
Any one can play along....so I did.
The challenge is to make a card with fish or fish lips on it. Well I guess I took care of that because my fish has both!
I don't do too many challenges but this one caught my eye as I have these awesome fish stamps from High Hopes and stubbies from Stamps by Judith I was itching to use.



I embossed the images with black and colored them with Tombows. I used my nesties for the hole and scallop. I used the worm can and fly hook stubbies for the background. Behind the fish I used a cb folder and on a few bubbles I put glossy accents so it would look like air bubbles. I also used glossy accents on the fish's lips. I printed the "Hugs & Fishes" on a piece of shrink film and shrunk it down for the sentiment. Last but not least I added some stickles.

I hope you like it.....
Have a great day
