Sneak Peek Day 5: Birthday Fishes
Hey everyone, Britney here! I am so excited to be showing you Day 5’s Sneak Peek, Birthday Fishes. This is from the first anniversary release for Pawsome Stamps! I can’t believe Pawsome has been around for a year already!!! The full release will be available tomorrow, May 17th.
I always like to start with my background first and I build up from there. I used some rectangle stitched dies to cut a dark blue panel and a white panel of cardstock. I blended on three different shades of blue ink. Using a stencil from my stash, I used those same blue inks to blend on some rays. I spritzed on some clean water and come flicks of white paint with a fan brush. I sat this to the side to completely dry as to not smear the paint. Once everything was dry I white heat embossed a sentiment from the set.
Stamping an image and sentiment on the inside finishes the card off nicely. It is easier to stamp an image and/or sentiment on the inside of the card before adhering the card panel to the base. The bulk of the foam tape can make it difficult to get a good impression using a Misti Stamping tool. I stamped the inside of the card using images and a sentiment from Birthday Fishes and a sentiment from Birthday Fishes and Macarons. I used a strong liquid adhesive to glue my panels to the card base. Sometimes I will put the card under something heavy to make sure everything lies flat.
I used the Misti Stamping Tool and a Copic-friendly ink to stamp images onto a piece of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock. Use your favorite color medium to color in the images. I prefer Copics usually. You can fussy cut the images or use the coordinating dies. I finished off my images using a white gel pen to add some accents and a black glaze pen for the eyes. I laid out my images to get perfect placement and popped them up using foam tape.
I hope you enjoyed today's sneak peek. The full release will be revealed tomorrow!!! Be sure to head over and check out all the new goodies. Have a wonderful day and make sure to check out all the goodies in the Pawsome Stamps shop.
