SU107 Fishy Valentines

I fell in love with these fish from THIS card!  I thought they were so cute so I had to come up with a card using them.

I use acrylic paints a lot to splatter cardstock, however they are starting to dry up on me.  Guess you can't ask them to remain in good condition after not using them for 10 years!  I decided to try my red re-inker for this card and it worked!  I just put a drop of ink on a plastic lid, dipped my wet toothbrush in it and splattered slowly.  It sure dries a lot quicker than the paints!  This is probably old news to you but I just figured it out!

I used the ornament punch to punch out the fish bodies from wallpaper.

Stamps - I {Heart} Hearts, Well Scripted. Both sets are from the Occasions Mini (Jan - April 2010)

Cardstock - White, Black, Wallpaper, Tempting Turquoise, Pretty in Pink

Ink - Tempting Turquoise, Real Red

Accessories - 1/4" hole punch, 1/2" circle punch, stamp aligner, heart punch by EK Sucess, Tiny Bubbles embossing folder, Real Red marker, ornament punch, whimsy wheel, red re-inker and toothbrush.

I also made a boy one.  Their bodies are also punched from wallpaper, matched it up with Brillant Blue cardstock and Bordering Blue ink.


  1. Those are so cute. I love how you did them. Now I have a use for the wallpaper I've collected.

  2. These are so adorable Carole! That punch sure is versatile! You are so creative! Hugs Lori
