Swimming By

...with a friendly "Hi". This sweet little fishie with the pretty swirled tail is just swimming by with a couple of friends. This started with the idea of a little elegant whimsey. Pale blue and browns. The fish are colored with Copic markers. The seashell is stamped with chocolate chip ink, then I just ran my water brush over it to spread the color a little.

The tag is a piece of Basic Grey chipboard covered in bashful blue card stock, with the edges inked close to cocoa, creamy caramel and chocolate chip.

Hope you're all having a good day. And if not, just keep swimming! Hugs!

What's In It?
Stamps: By the Sea (Lizzie Anne)
Paper: bashful blue, chocolate chip, kraft, white (Stampin' Up!); white (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: chocolate chip, close to cocoa, creamy caramel (Stampin' Up!); vintage photo (Tim Holtz distress ink)
Accessories: chipboard elements, precision file set (Basic Grey); ribbon (Michael's); aquapainter; Cuttlebug die; Copic markers; dimensionals

Me, I'm on a card making marathon, at least for me. I usually make one card a day. I've got three done so far today. Eat your heart out Dawn. HeeHee. If only, that girl is a stamping machine.

By the way, if you haven't see the new look on the Lizzie Anne website, check it out!
