Two Little Fish

Hello.  Welcome.  A special hi and hello to Anita, Susan and Susanne.  So happy to have you along.  A special big hugz to all my lovely followers.  Thanks for your support and encouragement.  

Today we have been having some weather.  We had chocolate melting, coffee blowing out of the cup weather.  Hot and very windy.  It was summer.  For one day.  Tomorrow it rains!!  What a strange year.  Over at Verve Stamps I was inspired by the black, pink and gold circles on the inspiration photo.  The black and pink have become another project but the gold ones look something like this

I die cut gold mirror card with Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle die and then embossed with Simon Says Stamp Bubble Parade die.  Then I used the bubble parade die to cut black, pink and gold glitter card.......

I added some of the gold glitter circles to the embossed design.  I stamped Inkadinkado's Cute Fish on white card, coloured with watercolour pencils and fussy cut.  The sentiment is from Rubber Dance Happy Birthday set, stamped on gold card, black embossed and edged/grunged with black archival ink.
