Gone Fishing

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

We have sun!  It did get rather chilly last night but this morning it seems to have warmed up again.  A day of crafting for me today and of course I need to get my crafting bag packed for tomorrow as I am off for a crafty day with Kath.

Today's card I made yesterday, I found a few challenges that this will fit into, I have used Ryn's Clown Fish and Rising Bubbles and I gave it the title of gone fishing, the Louis Armstrong and Bing Crosby song was going through my mind from the film High Society whilst making this card.



Recipe

1. 6 x 6 square card which I have matted and layered green card onto the base
2. On a piece of acetate I have made by dropping alcohol inks in green and yellow then dusted some mica powder over. I then cut this to fit over the green card which I have stamped 2 of the fish with Memento black ink.
3. I stamped the bubbles onto the acetate and attached to the green card, I have added some card candi to the 4 corners.


Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx
