Some more samples...of course!

Here are two more cards I made to display for my open house.

Be You Fishy! :)
Stamps: Just Beachy (SU-Mini Occasions Catalog)
Chipboard: Hobby Lobby
Paper: YoYo Yellow & Brilliant Blue (SU)
Ink: StazOn
Glitter: Glitter dust pen
I used the SU scallop border punch to make "waves". The top blue layer of waves I dotted with the glitter dust pen. The "independent" fish is highlighted with glitter and a circle I made with my SU circle punch. The fish is colored with SU markers.

Bliss in a Garden:
Stamps: Scene in a Garden (SU-Occasions Mini Catalog)
Paper: The Green Stack (DCWV)
Ribbon: Michael's
I colored the image with PrismaColor pencils.

I feel kind of silly "naming" my cards, but it's become a habit since I upload to SCS. The "fishy" card concerned me a little because of my husband's interpretation of it. I showed him the card and asked what he thought it meant. He replied, "Back Up?".

I wonder if a stapler upside the head would make things clearer for him? :)
