JDS - You're O-FISH-ALLY the BEST!

Hello my friends and welcome back to my blog!

Today's card is once again featuring a digital stamp from Jan's Digi Stamps and was inspired by the lovely Deb Davis from @amped2stamp. When I saw her card, I just had to case it and here is my take on it.

You're O-FISH-ALLY the BEST!

To create this card, I first copy/pasted and resized the FISH that came in the Stamp Set. I did this several times until I had a nice Background filled with FISH of different size and shape. The Background was then printed on Accent Opaque 80 lb Cardstock

You can find the stamp set here at https://www.janmahew.com. The stamp is called By the Sea.

Using a Blender Brush, I lightly inked some Distress Oxide Mermaid Lagoon all over, and then colored the FISH with my Copic Markers.

Blue Fish - BG11, BG13
Yellow Fish - Y15, Y18, E35
Green Fish - Y15, Y18, BG13 

Here is a closer look at the FISH Background:


The BIRD was then printed, fussy-cut and colored using the following Copic Markers:

Beak/Paws - Y15, Y18, E35
Fish - BG11, BG13
Bird - W00, W1, W3

Here's a closer look at the BIRD :

I then proceeded to cut and stack four 5 x 3 3/4 panels ending with a total of 2 panels with some dimension. The first panel was made with the Fish Background and the second one was with the Sentiment that I had previously printed on White Accent Opaque 80 lb Cardstock.

Here is a closer look at the Sentiment:

In order to follow the card I was casing, I created a sketch deciding where I would place my pieces and with a pencil I slightly marked where I would cut. Both panels were then cut exactly the same. The goal was to leave a 1/4 inch gap around each pieces. I then discarded the extra pieces that I would not need for my project.

All remaining pieces were then glued on a SSS Black 8 panel sized at 5 1/2 x 4 1/4. That panel was then glued to my top folding base card from Accent Opaque 100 lb Cardstock.

To finalize the card, I then glued my BIRD and using a 005 Micron Pen I created some stitched lines all around the panels which added a nice final touch.

And here you go, this was quite an easy card to do. Go checkout where I got my inspiration from here on Deb's Instagram Post.
