Two Little Fishes

Here's another card that recently went into my shop. If the truth be told, I won't be upset if this one doesn't sell. :o) I just love this little fish stamp by High Hopes Rubber Stamps. They have some of the most adorable stamps out there. These little guys were colored with my ZIG markers, cut out and then adhered to the card on foam tape. The polka dotted paper is DCWV and I added some swirly dry embossed paper and clear dew drops as accents. The sentiment is Stampin' Up!

I've got a lot of new stuff in the works for the upcoming weeks, so I hope you'll check back often. I'm starting to experiment with digi-images and just purchased a handful of them to play with, and I've just ordered some new Halloween and Christmas stamps too. I've also decided to start posting some of my own personal art here on this blog - things I make for me as opposed to things I'm going to sell in my Etsy store. When I'm making things for my shop I tend to go with "cute" because that's what most people like, but for myself --- well --- I like to play with all sort of style and techniques. I make altered books and tags, I keep an art journal, I love to do quilling and punch art, and I even make my own paper sometimes. I've also been experimenting for the last few days with making my own paper flower embellishments instead of buying ones from the store!

Well, as much as I'd love to go downstairs and play in the craft room I'm afraid I'm off for a morning of errands. I think I need a personal assistant! LOL.
Talk to you soon!
Sue :o)
