Birthday Fishes STB

Hi everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday! 

This time around the "Toppings" options is "Splatter". However, you can also chose to do an Anything Goes birthday card, the choice is yours!

I had great fun making this card, and almost everything was leftover from other projects so it came together pretty quickly. Well, quickly for me that is, the worlds slowest stamper! I even had the background in my UFO box. It didn't seem to work well for its originally intended project, but worked great as a watery background. It's smooshed and splattered! 

I am also playing along with the color inspiration board at Lawnfawnatics. Love the colorful inspiration photo! 

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Fintastic Friends, Mermaid for You, Happy Happy Happy (Lawn Fawn)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Smooth Watercolor CS (Bristol)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Brushed Corduroy, Rusty Hinge, Mustard Seed, Peacock Feathers, Crushed Olive Distress Inks (Ranger), Mermaid, Freshly Cut Grass (Lawn Fawn)
Markers: Copic
Tools: Big Shot, Fintastic Friends Dies, Mermaid for You Dies, Stitched Rectangle Dies, Stitched Hillside Border Dies (Lawn Fawn)

I'm so glad you paid me a visit today! If you have a moment please leave a comment, then visit the rest of the wonderful Design Team at Seize the Birthday. We'd love for you to play along, too!

Inky hugs :)

I thought I was the slowest stamper in the universe! We have so much in common yet again! LOL Your card is adorable and that sea background is perfect! I have been on the lookout for a cute sea creatures stamp set. Now I am going to have to look even harder! Thanks ;)
