I don't have any fishing stamps so I made my own fish for the MMTPT184 Challenge using a few Spellbinders Dies and a Cuttlebug Folder. The body of the fish is a Labels Four die cut, the top and bottom fins are the smaller Labels One die cuts, the tail is a Fancy Tags Two Die Cut and the middle fin is a leaf die cut from the Daisy Heads set. I used a brayer to apply Chocolate Chip Ink to my Spots & Dots embossing folder and ran the body through my Big Shot machine. I used the Scor-Buddy to make the score lines on the fins, then sponged them with Chocolate Chip Ink. Added a small heart punch for the mouth and I made the hook out of a SU "Pretties" kit hat pin...bet they never thought that one of the pretties would be used in a fish mouth!! :) The only feathery stuff that I could find around my house came from a glitter pen that my daughter had so it's pink, probably not my first choice, but that's all that I had. Made another Labels Four Die cut for the inside of the card and stamped it with a "Happy Healing" sentiment. Then I glued it all together. This was lots of fun to make!

Luv your homemade look like Mr Brown fish! His lips are especially cool even with that hook in them. I agree with the sentiment, OUCH! Way cute card here. TFS :0)

Genius you are! Tee hee! What a fun, fun, fun and creative fish you made for Tig! Ha ha! The pink totally makes sense here...those teapotters refuse to take the pink outa the picture! They claim more bright colors will get Big Brown's attention! Ah ha! I knew they knew what they were doing!!! Who needs a book? Fish with pink! Snort!
This card rocks Amy...Tig will be tickled and then tickled again by that pink feather.....Ha! love it!
