Happy Little Fish

Happy Tuesday!

This card is for Tuesday Throwdown's Weekly Challenge. I have the privilege of being on the Design Team over there, and this week we have some adorable images from My Graffico.



 
MYGRAFICO is a leading Digital Online store with Hand selected Designers. Our unique designs come with affordable prices. We offer Commercial Use, high quality, Designer clipart, digital stamps, Photoshop brushes, creative paper sets, scrapbooking designs, SVG cutting templates, pre-made party printables, and stationery templates.

 
I enlarged the fish digi to card-size, 4x4 so it would easily fit into a standard A2 envelope. I colored his stripes with Distress Inks in Barn Red and Spiced Marmalade, using a sponge. He is edged in Walnut Ink DI. I used the Friendship Definition background stamp by Hero Arts to give him texture, and a homemade look. His eye is coated in Crystal Effects.


The sentiment is by CTMH, and so is the twine. I cut a sheet of white card stock the same size as the card front, and attached it at the tail. The sentiment is attached with 3-D dots. I rubbed ink over the sentiment, as it was stamped on white cs.


 
Enjoy the Journey,

  16. This is sooooo cool! I think that orange marmalade may be my favorite distress ink. How do you attach the back of the card to the front? I love the paper you used for the background and the beautiful distressing and your sentiment is perfect!

    Thank you so much for joining the Stitchy Angel Design Team this week!
