I started with a Baja Breeze card base and grabbed Teeny Tiny Wishes, Stamp-A-Ma-Jig and Basic Black marker. First I inked up ISHES from the Get Well Wishes image and stamped it. Next I inked up F from the Friend to Friend image and stamped it to make the word FISHES. Next I inked up BIRTHDAY from the Happy Birthday image and stamped it. Voila! BIRTHDAY FISHES! LOL...
I stamped the fish swimming to and fro with Island Indigo and the bubbled with Baja Breeze. I used the negative of the scallop portion on from a Tasteful Trim die cut for the waves, which were sponged with Island Indigo ink. Then...when it was all done...I SMUDGED THE CARD WITH AN INKY FINGERPRINT! You should have heard the words coming out of my mouth!
Okay...calm down...just room for embellishment. That's when I inked up the shells with Sahara Sand, cut them and adhered them to card, popping up the scallop shell with a Dimensional. Phew! Saved it!!

Okay, first thing is - what the heck did you do to get that sentiment? Just kidding, I got it - from different sets. I know what you mean, smudging on a finished card is worthy of "not so nice words"! I did it on a card I worked so hard brayering and resist embossing, etc. It took a lot of work - and, then, the unthinkable. One of them I was able to salvage with embellies - whew, what a save. This came out so adorable and I think the cute seashells added to it anyway! Good to see you u/load again. I've been checking on and off to see if you were back!
