Daring Cardmakers & Friday Sketchers Challenges


I've just done a quick make while little-un is having a quick nap, and I've done this for two challenges - Friday Sketchers which is obviously a sketch, and Daring Cardmakers whose challenge is "Paint the Town ...". I used a SU stamp set that I've had for ages and never used (yes another one!!), so am pleased to have made good use of it. I stamped the fish over white paper with versamark, embossed with white powder, then painted with my paints (like Twinkling H2O's) with a water brush. I then did two extra fish and painted them too. Added some silver sticky paper to go behind, some organza ribbon and small circle punchies, and the Best Fishes from my sizzix alphabet (sorry, forgotten the name)!!
