Devyn: I love My Favorite Things! My Mom & I use a lot of their paper, ink, stamps, and dies. We love these fish! Since they are so small they’re easy to color. To start, my base is Gina K Designs Kraft cardstock. For the fish tank, I used Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# and distress oxide blended Cracked Pistachio and Salty Ocean. I die cut My Favorite Things Aquarium. I used Copic markers C1 and C3 to color the rock from Lawn Fawn You are Sublime. The yellow fish from Gill Friends was Copic colored with C5, C3, Y18, and Y38. The green fish is YG01 and YG03. I finished off by stamping the sentiment with Gina K Designs Jet Black Amalgam Ink.
Lori:Today, I wanted to work with a little Distress oxide blending. I started on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# these colors: Chipped Sapphire, Salty Ocean & Pistachio. I Sprayed with Imagine Crafts Shimmer Spritz for bubbles and some sparkle. Next, I cut My Favorite Things Porthole die in Tim Holtz gold Metallic Kraft-stock. I cut a circle of the blended background out and glued it behind the porthole on a piece of wood grain paper from our stash. I glued the front to a base of Gina K Designs Sea Glass. Next, I stamped a couple of fish and seaweed from MFT Gill Friends stamp set in Gina K Designs Amalgam ink and colored the striped fish in Copic #C5, C7,YR04and YR07. I colored the yellow fish in Y15, Y17, and Y19. The seaweed is YG61 and YG63. I glued everything down and inked the bubbles and seaweed stamp with GKD Amalgam. I cut a Memory Box Small Brain Coral die in Beige scrap cardstock, Memory Box Seaweed Ribbons and Seaweed Stalks in Gina K Designs Sea Glass, Turquoise Sea, and Tranquil Teal. I cut MFT Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strip in GKD Sea Glass and stamped with the “Tank You” sentiment from MFT GIll Friends in GKD Tranquil Teal ink. I then filled in the bubbles with Nuvo Crystal drops in Morning Dew. They weren’t quite dry when I took the photo!
