DCM - Fish or Frog

This week's Daring Cardmakers Challenge has been set by Rein. She wants us to make a card in for any occasion in the theme of fish or frog.

Here's my card: -

This was one of those times when I really could have done with the Ocean Commotion stamp set from the Stampin' Up!® summer mini but no such luck so I used some pre Stampin' Up!® fish stamps from Handcraft House. The sea background was created by sponging bashful blue over the torn edge of a piece of scrap paper leaving some white in between. The sage shadow and brocade blue was sponged in the gaps. The frolicking dolphins were stamped in brocade blue ink to complete the background.

Stampin' Up!® supplies used: -

Inks - Bashful Blue, Brocade Blue, Sage Shadow Classic Ink pads, Versamark

Papers - Whisper White, Brocade Blue, & Going Gray Cardstock

Accessories - Stampin' Sponge, Paper Cutter, Paper Snips, Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Adhesive.
