I started the card by choosing my dp. I knew I had some fish paper, and my DH chose this one. I took the green, blue and brown colors from the paper. I matched up the copic markers to the paper and colored away. I find these markers are so fun and soothing to color with. The final product looks so professional, and believe me I'm not a pro by any means! I also used the Spica silver glitter pen on his button and the fish hook in his hat, red glitter pen on the feather, and clear glitter pen on his cheeks. I placed the main image in the corner so some of the fish could still be seen...Sammy is a pretty big stamp! The "birthday fishes" is from PTI's Pond Life sentiments. It was perfect for this card. I stamped it then punched it out with the small oval and layered it on the large oval. The dew drops were the perfect color and looked like bubbles. I got these at my LSS, Buffalo Stamps & Stuff. Here is the inside of the card. I hope Ethan likes his card. I also hope he forgives me for getting it to him so late! Thanks for stopping by! Tomorrow I should have a tutorial for you. See you then!
