Fishy Friends


What a great colour combination challenge for us to play with at Create with Connie and Mary this week! I knew right away I wanted to play with the Summer Splash stamp set when I saw it.

I went with a Whisper White base for this one and added two strip of Peach Parfait to the bottom of the card – on the right I frayed the edges of the ribbon.

The focal panel is Riding Hood Red (which is textured with the Perfect Polka dots folder) and then Baja Breeze which is wheeled with the Fishy wheel. I then stamped two fish in Peach Parfait on Peach Parfait cardstock and cut them out. For one of the fish, I actually tried to make it look like gills/scales.

I used my Crop-A-Dile to make some little bubbles and added the anchor from The Open Sea along with a little bit of sand (Crumb Cake cardstock).

To finish, I added a little flag sentiment on the top. What do you think you could make with this combination of colours? Head on over to Create with Connie and Mary and show us your stuff!
