Best Fishes

All schtuff by Stampin' Up! Paper/Ink: Certainly Celery, Tempting Turquois, Cool Carribean, Whisper White. Stamps: Very Punny, Art is Life, Linen BG. Mini Brads by Spare Parts.

Right, so I needed to make a card for my granparents anniversary this Friday (51 years and still strong) and this is what I came up with. I used Laura's Color Combo Site to come up with this combo, but I am not sure how I feel about it yet. I found the layout on SCS a while back, but honestly, I can't remember which sketch challenge it was!

Stamped Linen BG with Certainly Celery on the CC CS and sponged the edges with the same ink. Tied the Celery organdy ribbon around the Tempting Turquoise CS and glued it down. I felt that the Cool Carribean panels needed some oompf so I stamped CC on the CS with the rough stamp from Art of Life...insta oompf!

Stamped the fishes from Very Punny with Basic Black on Whisper White then watercolored with a Niji Aquabrush and pad ink. Punched out with a one inch circle punch and glued the whole shebang down! Nifty, eh?
