Another Ocean Commotion



This card is for the SCS card sketch challenge #210. I made it a birthday card to help my stash for upcoming birthdays this year. I used the Jersey Shore SU DSP. This pack is one of my favourites in the brights and I must get some more before the next catalogue comes out. This will not be in the next catty as one of the matching colours is Wild Wasabi.

The second fish is mirror imaged and yes I know, I should have stamped off the first fish once but oh well, all fish are not the exact same shade - maybe??

Stamps: SU Ocean Commotion and Its Your Birthday
Card: SU Brilliant Blue and Whisper White, Jersey Shore DSP
Ink: Bashful Blue, Pumpkin Pie, Wild Wasabi and Pumpkin Pie

I wont get to post another card for a few days as we have visitors coming - sadly they are not stampers LOL but still very good company.

Jean, I didn't notice the different shades either! I love this stamp set & I just LOVE your card, particularly the way the different shades of seaweed create dimension.

This is great, love the colors. And no worries, no one would have noticed they were suppose to be mirror image, they look gorgeous.

Tracy said...

Wow Jean this card is Amazing! I never liked this set until now. I lurrv the fish in different shades wouldn't have known that wasn't meant to be unless you had said so.
Where did you buy your stamp to do reverse images like this?
Blessings, Tracy xx

Jean - I just love this card. I like the fact that the fish are different colors - all the colours work extremely well together. Great job on the challenge. I need to learn how to do mirror images.
