Ahoy and welcome to the Pretty Pink Posh and Avery Elle blog hop! I’m so delighted you are stopping by – you should have arrived here from Caryn –, as I have a super duper fun card for you that will hopefully make you chuckle (quite a bit). And of course, there are prizes!! Intrigued? Read on!
As I was coming up with the design for this card, I imagined the fishes from the “That Bites” set are trying to get snapshots for themselves. You know, for drivers licenses, passports, you name it. Poseidon knows what else fishes need photos for. But the photo booth was in an unfortunate location: strong currents had the fishes drift from here to there, and they had trouble getting a candid shot!
None of the fishes managed to get a perfect shot of themselves, hence the sentiment “That bites!” Ok, you are chuckling by now, aren’t you? The coloring was done with my Copic markers, and it’s very easy blending from dark to light, both on the fishes as well as the water background. To add texture and interest, I used a colorless blender marker to lift some color from the blue background and create the illusion of bubbles.
Thanks to double-sided adhesive, it was easy to fit the parts of the Pretty Pink Posh Film Strip die back together. For additional sparkle, I sprayed them with my beloved Perfect Pearls mist. I also added a strip of glitter paper to the side for contrast (add double sided adhesive to paper and dump glitter on it), and some Distress Ink behind the filmstrips because…water!
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you got inspired! Now keep on swimming…err, I mean hopping, on to the next stop in the hop, which is Yainea! 2 $25 Pretty Pink Posh gift certificates and 2 $25 Avery Elle gift certificates are up for grabs for those who leave some love (a.k.a. comments) on the way.
