At the Pals Paper Arts this week they challenge you to make your card with the use of brads…I got a little bubbly.
I know this fish was popular last summer but for me it’s one of those things that will never die. I will probably use it every summer for one reason or another and just update it with new SU! products. For instance:
Using the Glimmer Brads which had that beautiful ocean blue color that reminded me of the Caribbean ocean and the use of Smooch Spritz on the fish. I found that these brads were just a little too bulky, attaching them the usual way, so I snipped off the arms evenly with the top portion of the brad, added a glue dot. This gave a much smoother and cleaner look when I placed them back on the card.
I used the Vanilla Shimmer only spraying lightly, just enough to give it a hint of sparkle. And of course Baja Breeze had to be the color choice. I gave this fish a little lazy look as it swims by, by adding an eye lid and Inspired by Nature provided the sea grass.

You can see, here, that smooth look of the brads and that I popped everything up with dimensionals.
