I just love working with the Hero Arts CL945 Color Layering Goldfish stamp set which I had purchased at Tupelo Designs. But I was curious if goldfish were in other colors then gold and I did find that by using a search engine that they were. One color was more of a reddish look to it so I decided to try my hand at making a card with those colors.
I just love how the fish looked and for them I used Gina K. Designs Red Hot, Sweet Mango and Black Onyx inks. For the grass I used Red Hot and Fresh Asparagus. The stones were stamped with Blue Raspberry and Blue Lagoon and of course, the sentiment was stamped in black as were the air bubbles.
I die cut the scene out using an old Spellbinder set of mine called Large Octagons. I then outlined the scene with a thin layer of black. This was placed on a red panel which was embossed with a Darice Honeycomb folder and then die cut with a Die-Namics MFT-839 Wonky Stitched Rectangle Stackers die. The card was completed by placing all onto a white card base.
I am entering this in the a2z Scrapbooking February 2017 Challenge-Any Shades of Red and also in the Mod Squad Blog Challenge in which we are to use geometric designs. I guess a hexagon and a rectangle will qualify for that too.
Well, it has been a busy week. I cooked huge batches of potatoes as they are not keeping very well with this warmer weather and froze some as hash browns, some in mashed potato blocks and some as scalloped potatoes. It is a way of saving them and also makes for easy fixing later on too as most only have to be reheated in the microwave or fried in a pan, I can just take out the amount I need. I worked on that for three days.
Next week I am hoping to tackle some rearranging of my art supplies and purge a little. We shall see how that goes. And, the snow missed us but we are having colder temperatures. I hope that the winter weather for those who received it will not be too upset as with it coming at this time of year we know it won't stick around long.
Have a good weekend. And thanks for the comments too.
