Little Fishie

Hi everyone. Hope you’ve enjoyed the Hooked! inspiration from Kathy and Dawn this week. Their projects are fabulous.

My cards today feature the stamps from the Hooked! Box which are Crafty Impressions ‘I Am Hooked’ by Cathie Shuttleworth. I love the cute little fish so wanted to make some simple stamped designs with them.

For both cards, I created a sea background using Distress Inks in Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon and Salty Ocean. Once I’d blended them, I sprinkled drops of water over.

For card one I stamped a shoal of fish randomly over the background using Versafine Black Onyx ink. I added some silver sequins from the box for an air bubble effect.

I added my background to a card blank and finished with a sentiment stamped on white card

For my second card I cut 3 circle apertures in a 14 x 14 cm piece of card, then stamped my sentiment in the corner. I stamped 3 fish onto a blended background, cut these out and placed them behind the apertures before adding the panel to a 6×6 card blank. I finished with a few sequins.

I’d love to see what you can do with these stamps, they are so much fun and definitely one of my favourite items in the amazing Hooked! Box.
