Hey GILL Friend Card (Fairy Tale Challenge #161)

Hi everyone! :o)

It's time for a new challenge at Fairy Tale Challenge Blog.

Our theme for this fortnight is #161, Karten mit Humor / Cards with humor/fun. Funny images and sentiments, smiles, Smileys.... Anything you find humorous/funny/comic. :o)

This time our lucky winner will win this lovely stamp. :o)

And here is my take on this week's theme: Hey GILL Friend Card. :o)

For my card I used an adorable Paper Smooches 'Surf and Turf' stamp set. I have this set for a while and never used it before. Hmmmm.... I love tinny and funny images, wordplay and humorous sentiments. The set has that all, so it was finally time to open it and play with it. :o)

gill (English) - die Kieme (German) - škrga (Croatian)

"Gill... an organ (as of a fish) for taking oxygen from water.'
I stamped a fish on a watercolor paper panel and heat embossed bubbles in clear. I masked the fish and blended the panel with Distress Inks. I splattered the panel with water and Distress Ink Faded Jeans. I dried the panel with Heat It Tool.

After drying, I removed the mask, colored the fish in watercolor technique using Distress Inks and glued the panel on a white top folded card base.

Next up was a sentiment. I heat embossed in white the sentiment from the set on a black cardstock paper, cut it to preferable size, glued foam stripe on the back of it and glued it on the card.

At this point I didn't like "clear" bubbles at all. They were too pale, so I traced them with white gel pen. As a finishing touch I coated the fish and bubbles with Wink of Stella. Look how it shines!
