A good friend of mine asked me to make a card for her dad's 90th birthday and what better time to use my new fishy stamps.

I created the background using my blender brushes and some distress inks (broken china, faded jeans and iced spruce)-using those brushes makes creating the background a snap!!  Then I added the grasses and weeds and little stones along the  bottom using different shades of green inks (HA forever green, green hills, and field greens) - some I stamped some twice for more intense color.  The stones and bubbles were stamped with HA soft granite. l thought the fish that came with the set were a little too cutesy for an older man so used a fish die cut with green and silver paper.  Added the little sentiment and mounted on the new HA nautical cardstock.

A new challenge is coming tomorrow (15 April) at A Blog Named Hero so be sure to check it out and enter - win prizes from Hero Arts.
