Fancy Fish!

Happy Friday!

So it's the day when Erika of Snappy Crafts blog invites us to link up with her, showing an old craft project which doesn't have to be a card.

Mine today is a card I made a couple of years ago using a Woodware fish stamp.

After stamping I did some tangling and shading and outlined the image with a promarker pen.

I added a little colour to the tail and outside of the card with distress ink and mounted onto an embossed background.

If you join in with Erika and leave a comment she'll visit you in return.

I recently bought the six new stamp sets by Leonie Pujol.  My EZ mount arrived a couple of days ago so I'm off to mount up my rubber stamps.  It's a job I hate almost as much as ironing.

But tomorrow I'm off to Coleman's warehouse demo day with a friend so I'm looking forward to that. I hope you enjoy your weekend whatever you have planned.

Barb said...

Thank you all for your lovely comments. I realise I should call it tangling but to enter it into the challenge it had to be something beginning with "Z" . Barb

Hello there, Barb! I'm finally back in blogland! Thank you for your kind words on my blog! Your card is awesome! I am always amazed at zentangling - I have never tried it! Your fish looks amazing! I don't enjoy mounting stamps either, especially cutting around the image. I'm always trying to cut close but I'm afraid that I'll nick the image itself. Hope you have a great weekend!

Greta said...

Fancy fish is right! This is really beautiful, Barb!

I adore this tangled fish Barb and the bit of colour you have given it is just perfect with that soft embossed background. x

Linby said...

ooh great tangling - love it, that stamps lends itself to it so well too. I hate mounting stamps too!

Donna said...

Yep... I hate Ez Mount, too. It takes forever to get the residue off my scissors.
I'm sure Sarn loves this beauty of a tangle. x
