Simon's Best Fishes

Hi all :-) I recently bought quite a few crafty bits from the This Is The Life release and these cute Best Fishes stamp set and coordinating dies were amongst the first to be popped into my basket :-)

I decided to make a faux shaker, the sequins are glued in place :-) 


As the sides are quite narrow I die cut the bowl several times to create height rather than using 3D foam. I then used some versamark ink and embossed with Judikins Sticky Stuff, heat embossed then sprinkled with Hero Arts Prisma Glitter ,,, super sparkly !!
I created the background using the new waves stencil and broken glass distress ink and used a full card circle die to emboss the panel.
As you can see I finished the inside too but forgot to photograph, It says Birthday Fishes and I popped a die cut fish and stamped some seaweed in there too :-)


 Hope your summer is going along swimmingly too !

Another wonderful card. I'm a big lover of anything to do with the sea and coast. I thought it was strange how I could buy the stamp set and die set separately by $5 rather than buying the set together. Got them on my wish list.
