I made this card a while back and realized that I hadn't put it on my blog yet - silly me!!! I picked up this set called Sushi Bowl Party while I was in Austin at the end of March with my hubby who was on business. The stamp set is by Stampendous and is part of their "Perfectly Clear" line.
There is SO much going on here, I don't even know where to start! I stamped the fishbowl first and then stamped the castle. I then masked the castle and stamped the shells behind it. Being of the "go big or go home" ilk, I cut out the teeny tiny door in the castle and stamped the fishies on the inside - PHEW!
The larger fish were stamped into to bowl and then stamped again on a separate piece of cardstock, coloured, cut out and mounted on dimensionals for that 3-D effect. The little hats were stamped/cut separately too and I doodled in the streamers coming from the hats.
I masked the top of the bowl and stamped the balloon strings and the fish hook holding the heart so that it looked like the strings and fishing line were inside the bowl. Finally, I stamped and coloured the balloons. PHEW!!!
This would make a GREAT birthday card, but I'm not quite sure to whom I should give it...maybe my niece...her birthday is coming up in a few days - YIKES! Better get that in the mail!
