Fishey Wishes

Hello Buddies

What a change in the weather we have had today from the last few!  Gorgeous most of the day.  Just as well as I was lucky enough to meet up with two of my lovely Playground Buddies, Miss Di and ScrappyMo, today for a little chop at Flutterbys then a walk around Highclere.  Had to be on my best behaviour with Miss on account of a lot of potential naughty steps or a clip around the ear!  It was a fabulous day and thank you Ladies.

A few weeks whilst I had my Sweet Poppy stencils out I grabbed some other stencils that were in my collection and played, including this fishey stencil.  Though I did not quite know what I was going to do with them, I just left them on my desk until I had a fort! Yes it hurt!

Miss Di was kind enough to send me a Ryn stamp and had a Eureka moment one day when I was finking how I could use it.  So I inked a piece of card with my DIs and spritzed with water before drying.  I got my Cavallini stamps and stamped a background using AIs.
I then took my NBIS Ryn stamp and stamped the background, with first and second generation stampings.  Distressed the edges and inked before mounting them onto Snippet background piece sand then mounting onto VOS cards.  A little TH tag with some fluff and then I 3D mounted the fishies onto the card.  

I shall be popping these over to the Playground.  You will find me resting in the hammock. Zzzzzzz.

I would also like to Welcome Sue, Di and Sandy for becoming my latest Followers.  It makes me have a warm fuzzy feeling when I have new followers so Thank You.

I love both of these, Hettie! The backgrounds are gorgeous with Ryn's droplets! And the fish are amazing! Hope you don't get a good rest in that hammock!

Oh my goodness girl...these are both so nice...the second one in pinks made me smile...the wavy lines on the edging frame gives such a great feeling of waves.
The waterdroplet stamp is perfect on these and love the look you created on the backgrounds.

I will never forget the long journey you took to meet me! It still blows my mind to think of the distance you drove. May we be bloggy friends forever and perhaps more IRL in the years to come.

Off to catch up on your blog and see what I have missed.

Isn't this just wonderful, you captured a watery atmosphere to perfection.

Sounds like a fabulous day... and I love your fishy cards. The backgrounds are gorgeous, and the texture on the fish is so cool. Sorry to be behind - my internet's been playing up, so I'm sitting in Caffe Nero trying to do some catching up... have a great weekend!

Love your fishey card using your new stamp from Miss. Haven't tried mine yet. Naughty of me I know. We had a lovely meal out at a fish restaurant to celebrate our day. I had a lovely white fish baked in a salt crust. Yummy yummy.
