365 Cards Challenge - Something's Fishy

For todays challenge over at 365 Cards you had to include at least one fish - kinda tricky as I didn't have anything remotely fishy! I've had my eye on some digi-stamps from Pink Petticoat for a while so thought why not - and Cory can use them too. So, here's my attempt:


I haven't made a shadow box card for a while so thought I would give it another go. I cut the circle in the base cs using my cuttlebug and nesties after scoring the fold lines. The fish is between two layers of acetate, as are the rocks and weed (both free hand drawn). I used DCWV dp on the back sheet, and the blue dp on the front is American Crafts. I finished it with the greeting (part of the digi-stamp kit) and a button, and some peel off stickers that I think look a bit like bubbles. It's not a great picture as it's so hard to photograph acetate, especially at night with rubbish lighting!

Thanks for looking

Hey Mandy! This is a GREAT card! The fish is very cute (love his stars!!) and the bubbles in the corners are so cool ~ they definitely look like bubbles! Great job drawing the rocks and the weeds - I really like the whole fish bowl scene! tfs!

I don't look at the cards until I have mine designed. It's too funny we used the same sentiment. Great job!

Now this is cute! Super duper cute! Hero Arts has a set of fishy stamps that look similar in style to this and seeing your card really makes me wish I'd gotten them yesterday with my coupon at the craft store! LOL
