Something A Little Fishy – PPA95

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:

        008

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.

                 006

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.

Supplies needed ~ all are SU! unless otherwise noted

  • Card stock – W. White (textured and smooth) and B. Breeze
  • Punches – Ornament, Five Petal, Circles and MS Seahorse and Star Fish
  • Misc. – B. Breeze Ink, Glimmer Brads, Smooch Spritz, White Gel Pen and dimensionals
  • Stamps – Inspired by Nature, Delightful Decorations and bubble stamp is unknown

I hope you enjoyed today’s card and that you all have a GREAT MEMORIAL WEEKEND.  Be SAFE in all that you do and I’ll see you right back here on Monday
