Let's Get This Party Started!



Hello everyone! I think I am in a "fishy" mood! LOL! The last card I did was a fish too so I must be ready for summer!
This is such a fun card, I just love it! I recently bought the Imaginisce Splash Dance stamp sets and couldn't wait to do something with this adorable blowfish. I stamped him and the water splashes, colored them with Copics, and cut them out. I embossed the bottom strip of paper and added some matching paper over the fish's bottom. I added Glossy Accents to all the splashes and the blowfish's eyes. To finish I added some twine and stamped the sentiment. How much fun is that sentiment? It is so cute!
SUPPLIES
My Craft Spot- Birthday Wishes Stamp Set, Green Apple Twine
Imaginisce Blowfish stamp
Tiny Bubbles Cuttlebug Folder
Glossy Accents
Copic Markers

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges
