Best Fishes Spinner

These goofy fish from the Just Beachy set crack me up! I made this card for my son's 21st birthday, and wrote a "warning" inside about drinking like a fish. As I was making the card I thought it would be kind of funny to have one fish spinning "out of control" across the top, so I made it into a spinner card. I think he liked the card, but I know he really liked what was in it...tickets to last nights Red Wings game which was game 1 of the playoffs! He thought we were just going to dinner but we surprised him by taking him to the game as well. The Red Wings won 4-1 against the Blue Jackets so it was a fun and memorable night.To create this card I first stamped the seaweed using the leaf image from Great Friend. Then I stamped my fishy scene using Black Stazon. I watercolored the fish and then masked them so I could sponge the watery background. I saw this cute card on SCS and loved how she made waves using the scalloped border punch, so I added some scalloped waves as well. For the finishing touch I put crystal effects on all the eyes and then where they would fit, I added googley eyes.

Thanks for visiting me today...have a great weekend!

OMG, the card is too cool. But, pardon me while I gush over the fact that you were at the playoff game! Wow, how awesome! We just this last year got a CHL team here in Rapid City and I had so much fun that I conned my husband into getting season tickets next year. Believe me, I'm watching the Stanley Cup on TV!
