Fishy Theme Mini Marvel

Good Morning Crafters

A few weeks ago I signed up to a Go Fish swap on Facebook in the Mini Marvels group, we could make anything as long as it was mini and followed a fish theme. I found this cross stitched Nemo in my stash a few weeks ago. 

The background is a scrap from my Distress Oxides scrap box.  I have stamped seaweed using Memento Pistachio and Olive Grove inks and a stamp from Ultimate Crafts The Cardmakers Collection Sea Breeze magazine.

The stitching is adhered with Pinflair 3D glue gel.  The sequins also came with the magazine.  I used Katy Sue Designs Seashells and Seahorses moulds and Hearty air dry clay.  I coloured the shells with Brown Wink of Stella and Sweet Poppy Strawberry Sorbet Metallic Shimmer and Sheen Lustre Paint.  The seahorse is coloured with Imagination Crafts Starlight Metallic paint in Salmon.

ATC Swap Letter S

Good Morning

Today I am sharing three more ATCs.  This time the letter is S, if you know me well enough you won't be surprised that my first thought was Snow!  As I have done before I wanted to link the cards in some way so for my other two I decided on Spring and Summer. 

For the Snow ATC I used a vintage image I printed a while ago, the background is VersaMagic Aspen Mist.  I inked my craft mat and spritz it with water.  For the "snow" I used Sweet Poppy Pearlescent paste through John Next Door Duo Mask Argyle.

The Spring ATC background is a flower stamp from the Crafting Together by Lizzy and Rosella in VersaMagic Thatched Straw and Rabbit stamps from Card-io Collection Cottontail Capers with VersaMagic Gingerbread.  The vintage image is from an ATC booklet I bought sometime ago, I have also edged this with Aspen Mist.

Finally for my Summer ATC I have used distress inks; Dried Marigold, Mustard Seed, Broken China, Weathered Wood and Faded Jeans to create the background.  The image is from another ATC booklet. The flower is stamped on black cardstock using Versamagic in Aspen Mist and Night Sky.

The S letter is cut from an Alphabet die set that was free with Papercrafter magazine.
