Last Friday I created a card for the Limited Supply Challenge on Splitcoast–create a card for Grandma from our kids using kid-themed stamps and NO flowers.  I didn’t have the time to create one for my daughter until today.  This card is a complete CASE of a card I did last summer.  I switched the colors to my daughter’s most favorite color–pink, of course!  The Dotted background is embossed with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder (one of my all-time favorite accessories).  The starfish, fish & crab were stamped in Black StazOn ink on watercolor paper and then watercolored with an Aqua Painter and reinkers.  This card is just a little bit different than my original–for the original card, I watercolored the fish from the Fishy wheel, cut them out and attached them to the card.  For this one, I stamped the fish from the Fishy Friends set so they’re a lot bigger.  It took me just a minute to figure out why the fish were so big!  Since I had already colored and cut them out, I was NOT going to redo them!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
