Kristina's Colour Inspiration #16

Tonight we have another colour challenge from Kristina Werner, inspired by these really cute little baby booties...aren't they sweet!
As regular readers of my ramblings know, I have a bit of an issue with Orange, more specifically Pumpkin Pie...it's a long story that I promise I will reveal in full....one day when I have nothing more interesting to write about ;)
Anyway, here's what I came up with:

Not the best picture...but who expects anything else from me....really? The base card is Certainly Celery and topped with Soft Sky. The fish was stamped in Stazon onto Very Vanilla then coloured with Pumpkin and Celery markers. I then rubbed it all over with VersaMark and embossed it with clear embossing powder to make it shiny. I cut it out, omitting all the fiddly little bits, then stamped it again directly onto the Sky CS and stuck the coloured one on top. The 'seaweed' at the bottom is the jelly fish tentacles stamped upside down {Thanks to Madonna for that cool idea!} in Celery and bits coloured with the Celery marker {both stamps from "Fishy Friends"}. I then sponged the Sky CS with Sky ink and stamped the little fish in the background with VersaMark. The sentiment is a rub on from 'Cherished Memories' on Vanilla CS and punched out with the small oval punch. It's popped into an oval frame from the Styled Silver Hodgepodge from the new mini catty and attached to some Very Vanilla Ribbon with two pale blue rhinestone brads. Oh, and the little bubbles coming from the fish have Crystal Effects on them to make them look like real bubbles...very cute IRL!


I will probably try and get another picture of this tomorrow in the daylight, in the hopes that you can see all the little details...it really is much cuter in real life than in this pic! {ETA: I have replaced the pic with a 'slightly' better one taken in the natural light....still doesn't show how shiny the fish is though...}

Have a great day {or night as the case may be}

I LOVE your fishy card Kristie. Great idea to emboss the fish.

I looked at the 'seaweed' and was thinking...I've seen that stamp, but not like that! What a groovy idea.

Cheers,
Sam.
