Getting fishy again

Virginmedia broadband is down this afternoon so i'm using my iPad with 3G with blogpress - although i've had this for some time I haven't used it much and am not that familiar with it - finding it's much more fiddly to link urls than it is normally - it's all good practice.

Having made the previous card I had the final card of the fish pack out and it seemed silly to put it away again so I've made another fishy card, this time embossing with the cuttlebug d'vine swirls folder and swiping with stormy sky and shabby shutters distress inks. The sentiment is once again made on my Letratag label maker.

You can't really see it on the photo, but I used a metallic silver pen to fill in the wavy cut outs and the eye.

Fishing u a happy birthday

This fish shaped card is for CAS-ual Friday 66: create a project featuring something you might see in or at the ocean.

I stamped the fish with a prima stamp inked with broken china distress ink, then I embossed with the spots with a folder through my cuttlebug, then distressed with stormy sky DI with a hint of shabby shutters.

The sentiment was generated with my Letratag label maker.

Please excuse the background - I put the fish card on a piece of white card to take the photo, but still trying to get used to taking one with the iPad.

Inking stamps with markers

CCEE 1233 asked us to use markers direct to our rubber stamp. I made five clean and simple cards, inking up the Lindsay Mason script robin stamp with red and brown whispers strokes markers by sugarloaf and then inking up the 'Christmas cheer' sentiment on the large Papermania 'a Christmas carol' stamp with the brown marker and stamping.

I made five cards because I sell packs of 5 nearer to Christmas to raise funds for Tearfund.

The stamping isn't blurred - it's the iPad photo (still trying to get used to using this as my camera is broken).
