Orange Bugs & Fishes

I’m home and I’m ready to share some great new cards with you now that I have Internet access. Yes, I was going through withdrawals, but I did self-medicate with some chocolate. :)

Are you ready for another look-see of a new Paper Pretties’ stamp? This one is of Wade from the new Bugs and Fishes stamp set. He’s a real sweetie and I love the cute fuzzy towel that Joni drew for him. He looks like he just jumped out of the water and is quickly drying off before grabbing a PB&J sandwich for lunch!

Quick notes: Wade was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah paper and then colored with Copic markers. Crystal Effects was applied to the goggles, flippers and bathing suit (‘cause he just finished snorkeling. I paper pierced a piece of designer paper and stapled a couple pieces of ribbon to the top before adhering to a Tangerine Tango card base. Last steps were to layer Wade on a piece of Always Artichoke cardstock, stamp a sentiment and add a clear bauble thingy I bought in a big bag at Michael’s (floral department).
