Wake Up Fishy, FISHY WAKE UP!


I know, three posts in one day! But you'll be pleased to know I'm not singing in this one. Just flinging quotes from Finding Nemo at you again! Scroll down for some Cupcake love and my first Pollycraft card. There's a chance to win a little prize in there somewhere...!

So, it's a morning of firsts. Take a looky at this sketch. Yep, it's all me baby! Over at Sketch n Stash, it's my turn to give you a sketch to play with. All you have to do is provide the stash. Don't forget to tell us what your new and/ or old stuff is.


My new stash is the stamp from the about to be released Nautical Range from Rainbow Studios. Actually, this image is made up from four stamps. The fab seaweed stamp is mahoosive and I've used the middle section from that. Then I masked it and used three individual fishy stamps to make a little fishy scene. Coloured with my (beloved, but don't tell the Copics) Polychromos. I blended with (supposedly) odourless spirit (but I was 'happy' when I'd finished) which I don't normally do, as I like the texture pencils give. But on this occasion I needed the colour to be a bit smoother. The old stash is the mesh in the corners. I have about a one metre square of this, which I've had since 1944, so I was really pleased to use a 6.5 cm square of it!


Anyways, we're sponsored by Simon Says Stamp this time. Pop over to Sketch n Stash for all the deets and to see the brilliant cards from the rest of the DT. I hope you like my sketch enough to play along...

BTW. When Very Understanding Hubby and I first saw Finding Nemo, we laughed because the character that says Wake up Fishy, FISHY WAKE UP is sooooooo like me!

Fintastic (ha!) card but I have to say I am truly amazed at how young you appear and to have a little one now too! I mean if you were around to have stuff in 1944....Guinness book of World Records are on their way!

Bananastamper said...

ooh my goodness, maybe I'd better run - if I recall correctly, that little girl who tries to "wake the fishy" is SO annoying - lol!
Your card is gorgeous - wow, your coloring is fantastic - great sketch too!
Cheers,
Shanna
p.s. I won't run away, really...

Dorcas said...

Very cute! The glitter on the seaweed is perfect and I like the mesh corners too!
It seems I spent a little too much time trying to "wake up" my fish that insisted on swimming upside down, til I couldn't take it anymore and got rid of my tank....:-(

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

Totally cool!!!!
