This fortnight's challenge at Shopping Our Stash is called, "Here Fishy Fishy" and if you think we're looking for projects which feature our fin-bedecked aquatic pals, you're way ahead of the game! This would be a great time to get a jump on Father's Day cards; or even maybe just a little kid birthday, as I've done here:
I've had Lawn Fawn's "Critters in the Sea" stamp set* for at least eight or nine years and I still find myself coming back to it over and over. The critters are a lot of fun to color, or... as I've done here... to paper-piece. I also make a couple of "Best Fishes" cards per year, in styles ranging from realistic to uber-cute; clearly this is the latter, so I've used Doodlebug and Pink Paislee alphabet stickers for the sentiment. I torn apart a piece of well-hoarded, not-quite-solid, Basic Grey patterned paper and layered it over a background featuring all my pale blue washi tapes, added the fishy friends, et voila: une carte avec poisson!
Swim on over to SOS to see additional aquatic awesomeness and link up your own FIN-tastic creation!
*Out of curiosity, I checked Lawn Fawn's website and discovered that "Critters in the Sea" was released in 2010, and along with many others in the "Critters" line, it's still in print! (PS: I've now made myself crave a BUNCH more sets, especially "Critters in the Arctic"!)
