Hello. Welcome. I have been playing with my stamps. A couple of places are asking that we use our stamps in a way other than originally intended. Since one of these places is A Blog Named Hero I rummaged through my Hero Arts stamps an came up with this.
For my background I covered my card with 4 shades of blue Distress Inks then stamped Hero Arts Word Pops in Pine Needle DI. Then I spritzed like a crafter possesed. I wanted it blotchy and blurred. Once it had dried I stamped the flower cluster from Hero Arts Asian Elements, also in Pine Needle DI. Then, because I wasn't sure I had stretched it enough I took the Chinese Lantern from the Asian Elements set and made........
WIERD FISH!! I'm sure they aren't the cutest, and there is a good chance no-one will ever again feel the need to make Chinese Lantern Fish, but I am 100% sure it isn't what the designer intended, so I am on spot for the challenge!! This is quite a solid stamp so I used VersaMark and clear embossing powder. I made the blue fish first but thought he was a bit dark, so I made the green ones. I have smeared a bit of black ink over the embossed areas to bring out the details and added a wobbly eye for cuteness. The letters were cut using Sizzix Chocolatey Goodness dies.
