SC215 - Best Fishes!


This card was made using last week's sketch from Splitcoast Stampers. The fish stamp is from Impression Obsession, and I colored it using a new product I recently bought, called Shimmerz paints and Blingz. They are water-based paints that are very shimmery and come in 35 colors. I started out purchasing four colors, so my palette was a bit limited, but I thought they would be perfect for working with my fish stamps. They are fun to work with, so I'm sure I'll be getting some more colors soon!

In addition to filling in the stamped image, I used it to paint the edges of my card and both of the Nestabilities Labels Two panels. I also used some blue Taylored Expressions' Tiny Twinkles for the fish's bubbles and added a few Dew Drops in the bottom left corner of the card to balance it out. The patterned paper is from my stash and the two shades of teal card stock are from Prism.

That's about it. Hope you're having a good week so far! Thanks for looking!

What a great card, Robin. I love the soft ocean colors. The Shimmerz are a nice touch, have not tried them yet. Thanks for sharing.

THAT DP IS PERFECT. HOP I CAN SEE THIS ONE IN PERSON -- I HAVE NOT YET PLAYED WITH THE SHIMMERZ, SO WOULD LIKE TO SEE IRL.
