Another Fish Card

Here's another fish card using a lovely Lil' Florida Jack image from Fred B Mullet's line of Nature Print stamps.  I used Fred's spritzing technique to get the field of diffuse images and my stamp positioner to add detail and intensity to one of the fish.  A few finishing touches with some white paint on the eye, some pencil crayon, and an ink frame and I had my focal image.  I used Tombow markers (027 and 528) and spritzed water for the fish.  The focal image is mounted on some khaki linen cardstock, and the card base is Not Quite Navy (Stampin' Up), stamped with a coral image from Fred B Mullet.  The lace paper is from my package of Japanese paper scraps and is so gorgeous I can't believe I used it.

I don't have time for chit chat today - must dash off to DD2's dance recital.  Have a great weekend!


  1. Oooo, I love this one. It's a whole school of lovely fishies!
    I hope the dance recital was wonderful (I'm sure it was)!

  2. Oh, my - such movement and grace captured here. Love the water look - feel as though I may actually get splashed. What a great technique and you've handled this image so artfully.

  3. No time for chit chat!!! What's the world coming to lol.

    This is absolutely stunning. I went 'oooo' out loud. Love everything about it, works brilliantly.

    Hope DD2 did ok. :0)

  4. LOVE LOVE LOVE what you did here...

    ...also thanks for your nice comment on the Darkroom Door website! I appreciate that! Friday will be the next bunch of cards and ATC's.
