Mother of All Blog Hops: Bubble Bubble (Fish speak for Happy Mother's Day!)

Welcome to the There She Goes Mother of All Blog Hops! Woo hoo! If you have arrived here from Silke Ledlow 's blog, then you are in the right spot. If not, I recommend that you start back on the There She Goes company blog to get the introduction to our hop as well as the details you will need in order to enter to win some amazing prizes!

For my card I decided to showcase the mini set Best Fishes. The fishes are just so much fun to color (and then cover in a bit of Crystal Effects... hee hee).

The designer paper is by My Mind's Eye from the Quite Contray line. Love it and had to buy more yesterday while shopping with my mom... a lot of it. ;) I covered the fish's tail and fins with Crackle Accents and once that was dried and cracked I coated the rest of the fish with regular Crystal Effects. For the background I stamped several other images (coral, seaweed) in Memento Rich Cocoa on Kraft cardstock and then colored with Copics. Added some stitching and sponged a bit of Ranger Distress ink on the edges to finish.

A bit of designer paper, ribbon and paper punching finished the card. Oh happy fish! :)

Now it's time to send you on to the next stop in the hop: Sandra MacLean's blog! Have fun viewing the rest of the eye candy! :)
