Brilliant Pumpkin Garden Fishes!



Good Morning everyone!! It's another cloudy, drizzly day here in Central Texas. When I saw the color challenge colors I perked up right away...who could be in a funk working with Pumpkin Pie, Brilliant Blue, and Garden Green!!??!!
My DGS's birthday is on the 20th so I made the little underwater scene for his birthday card.

The adorable Whipper Snapper Designs fish, underwater foliage, and sand were stamped the Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with copics. The Stampin Up! shells were stamped with pumpkin pie and Brilliant Blue, covered with crystal effects, and dusted with Dazzling Diamonds. Blue gingham ribbon on a clip was used to glam it up a bit....hope he doesn't think it is tooo girly!!! The orange and striped dp is by Pebbles, Inc. I hope you can see all the little fish!!





I cut the edge of the paper in a curved pattern to mimic waves and the edges of the main image were distressed. Sponging was done on the image with Bashful Blue. The sentiment, an unknown Stampin Up!, was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Whisper White, cut out with Nesties, sponged with Bashful Blue, and attached with dimentionals. Crystal Effects was also added to the fins of the fish and the sand and then dusted with Dazzling Diamonds. Dew Drops were added for the bubbles.
Thanks for visiting today and have a wonderful day!!!
