O”FISH”ally Awesome

DSC03086

You can see the glossy texture in this photo. The cut line is actually a mark left after I pulled out a cat hair!

Hello!!!

Have a “male” card for you today! Don’t make these very often because I CANT do these! I end up adding pearls and flowers every time. This time though I didn’t feel the need of pearls! :) I made it for my mum’s colleague. He has a great sense of humour and is quite a prankster!

The card is based on Chupa’s sketch this week and follows the theme of Cute and Cuddly at Wee Memories.

Don’t know if fishes come under this theme, but these fishes looked so cute!  The sentiment is from TLC, the fishes from Mami Doodles (I think). The argyle pattern is cut with Silhouette, I bought this from their store. The pattern paper is from Shery K Designs.

I have used lacquer on the fishes to give them a glossy finish. Used yellow gel pen on their fins and tails. The white CS is distressed with French Blue ColorBox queue ink (Thanks Stef!) and the PP with Colonial Blue ColorBox queue ink . The light orange layers are coloured with Crayola markers.

I will be entering this card in Sentimental Sundays as well.

I don't know if fish are cuddly, but these are definitely cute! Love your whole design E.T! The argyle pattern is quite cool! The sentiment is perfect! Great male card! I find them very difficult. I like my pearls are girly things too!

This is completely adorable! The fish are so cute, and I *love* the argyle overlay. Orange and blue is such a great color combo for a masculine card, too.

Lovely evening Ms ET and lovely card! I have the same problem with cat hair, but usually mine is with my tape, silly cat loves to sit on it for some reason! Please stop by my blog as I have left something special for you HERE. I hope you do not mind and that you will accept it. Your work truly is beautiful and I feel it should be acknowledged and shared.
