Just dropping you a line...





I've loved this adorable set from Stampendous for a while now, but have never put them to the ink pad until this card. I got a wonderful RAK from my bestee with a small dollar type stamp in it that had the sentiment "Just dropping you a line..." and I knew I had to put it with these great fishy images. The fish bowl is actually stamped once on the background and once on a transparency. Then I colored the transparency very roughly with a blue water colored Copic. On the background I stamped the castle and bubbles on the bowl image. Then the fish were stamped and cut out separately so I could toll and pop them off the background a little. Then the transparency was laid over the background to give it the "bowl" look. When I went to take a photo of it all, the transparency just wanted to reflect back at me... So, I'm not sure you can really see the effect, but trust me... it's coolio! The papers are a fun set from GCD Studio's called Canta. Fun colors and a little bit of a whimsical feel, just what I was going for.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
