Fishy Birthday

Hi Everyone!  Today is my beautiful niece's birthday in South Africa and this is the card I made for her.

Paper: PTI Cardstock, Neenah Solar White
Stamps: Hero Arts
Ink: Garden Green, Sorbet, Crystal Blue & Blush from CTMH;Vintage Photo Distress Ink, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics
Other: EK Success Scallop Border punch; Orange Peel Stickles; Glossy Accent

I used one of the fishies from a Hero Arts set to create the background in various colours. I did mask the one fish on the bottom right when I stamped the seaweeds. The single fish is from a different Hero Art set and is coloured in with Copics and adhered seperately. I added a little stickles to the orange fins, and some glossy accents to the bubbles which is a bit difficult to see in the photo.

And that's it. I matted the main image on pink cardstock and added a scalloped border in orange on which I stamped the sentiment!  Her party theme was Hawaii so I thought I would stick with a card from the sea!

Thank you for popping past! Have a wonderful day!
