Just Us Girls #355 - Word Week

Hi friends!  There's a great challenge over at Just Us Girls this week.  It's Word Week and Sharyn chose the word "water".
 
I recently purchased three of these color layering stamp sets from Hero Arts and one of them was this goldfish set.  I was kind of bummed because I thought I had the dies for this set, but I guess I didn't!  It must have been sold out when I bought the stamp set.  You better believe they are on my next craft purchase!  I'm so spoiled with these dies lately!  So I had to change my design plans.  I decided to do some masking.  I stamped the fish using the Mini Misti and then masked them.  I also masked off the center portion of the panel and sponged some distress inks.  I spattered some water on it to make it look more like water.  Those orange and yellow dots are Nuvo Crystal Drops.  There's some shimmer on the fish too.
 
You can see more from our JUGs design team and our new guest for August, Colleen Foelker, on the JUGs blog.
 
Thanks for stopping by!

I know what you mean about dies, Lisa, but you did a fantastic job of masking and your water is wonderful.

Super cute card, LOVE those fishes. I think I saw Jennifer use them in a video and had to have them. Never ended up buying them, but I really like them. You have used them perfectly here, great design and great take on the challenge.

What a terrific card. The beautiful colourful fish are scene stealers and the coloured bubbles add something very special. Thanks for sharing your card, it's delightful!
