Fishy Friday!

A while back I made a card for my DT post for Make The Day Special Stamp Store,I wanted to try and make a card version of Big Mouth Billy Bass,that singing wiggling fish on a plaque,remember him? Sure you do! So I reached for my WPlus9 Fish More set teamed with Lawn Fawn's Fanciful Frames to recreate a papery version of that iconic singing fish ;-) here he is

And a closer look

To get that cool fish colouring effect I stamped the fish first in an peachy yellow,then inked the fish up with a forest green,but wiped the bottom bit off with a cloth,then carefully stamped over the peachy fish to give that two-toned look. (Jennifer McGuire does a great video on how to do this technique) Then I brushed over a little gold perfect pearls to give him a fishy sheen (that sadly doesn't seem to pick up in photos) I LOVE that sentiment,so funny!
