Birthday Fishes!

It's time for a new Inky Impressions challenge! This week it's IIC #127 - Sports and Hobbies! Come play with us! The winner will receive $10 to spend in the Inky Impressions online store!

For my DT inspiration project, I used the absolutely adorable "Christopher Fishing" stamp! He's just so stinkin' cute! Before I get to my card, I have to tell you that if you've never used an Inky Impressions stamp, you need to check them out because you're in for a real treat! They are deeply etched red rubber mounted on EZ Mount, and come on a laminated card for storage. And this little guy just happens to be on sale! ;)

It's been a while since I've created a window card, so I thought it was time!

I matted green crinkle paper on light blue cardstock, and then used the light blue cardstock to create a scalloped circle die cut frame for the window.

The inside is the colored image matted on the light blue cardstock.

I'd love to enter this cute little window card into the following challenges:

  • GKD Pure Luxury White cardstock (card base); Crafter's Companion white cardstock (image); DCWV blue textured cardstock; The Paper Cut green crinkle paper
  • Inky Impressions Christopher Fishing stamp
  • Copics: E00/33/35/37, B00/91/95/ R20, C1/3/5, YG11/17, Y21
  • Memento Tuxedo Black ink
  • Sakura Stardust pen
  • Spellbinders Classic Circles and Scalloped Circles dies
  • Lil Inker Designs Stitched Sentiment Flag die
  • Fish brads

I hope you're inspired to play in our Hobbies and Sports challenge! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)
