To Say Hi


I am playing along A Blog Named Hero's June Challenge - Vellum.

Ever since I got the Hero Arts Color Layering Goldfish set, I wanted to do the 'classic' fish bowl scene.  But one thing leads to another...finally I played and came up with this:

My gold fish is stamped and heat embossed on vellum.  I stamped the sea weed with Peeled Paint on the vellum, and the darker colour ones are on the card.  The vellum panel is adhered to a white card panel with matching square cut out, and layered over by a Stitched Sq Scallop Frame.  Then the whole piece is adhere to card base with foam tape.

I was stamping the sentiment right on the front panel, but got a little boo boo, so had to cover up with a banner.

Here's a little close up of the fish.

So stunning, Cindy! Your embossed gold fish is gorgeous, and I love how you stamped the seaweed partly on vellum and partly on white c/s...You did an amazing job on your underwater scene...I love it!
Thanks so much for inspiring me to play with my fish set...I've been struggling with it, and you've given me some great ideas :)
