SEA-ing You Makes Me Smile

Hello Crafty Friends!

Today's card was made for Ruthie's Tacky Tuesday Challenge that is held on the Tacky Tuesday Facebook Page. It is a monthly challenge that has a fun twist of play on words. This month's challenge was to use any sea creature and to use the word SEA.

I decided to make a pedistal card that was somewhat inspired by Lisa at Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons. You can view her card HERE.


I used an SVG file from Lettering Delights called Something Fishy for all of my cuts.This SVG file is on sale until Thursday!  For the ocean floor I added sand paper that I hand cut and inked.


My faces were stamped using Peachy Keen Stamps PK-560 Dolly Dumplins Face Assortment. For my blow fish I decided I wanted to use some googly eyes so I only used the nose and mouth of the stamp.

My sentiment was computer generated. I used a piece of clear packaging on the back of my bubbles so that they look like they are floating above my blow fish's head.


A few other details, My finished card is 5.25 x 5.25. All cuts were inked with varius colors of ink and I added my doodles with my Sakura Gelly Roll pen in white. I added cheeks with chalk. I also added Orange Peel Stickles to my blow fish.

I think that's about it! If you would like to play along in this challenge just log into facebook and visit the Tacky Tuesday Page.

Happy Crafting!!
