Designer Drafts at Paper Smooches

Sketch time over at Paper Smooches SPARKS, and since a gorgeous floral set is on its way to me right now (come on, Canada Post!) of course my brain was stuck on the flowers in the sketch. Finally this morning a new idea came to me!

Supplies: Paper Smooches stamps; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Tumbled Glass, Broken China, and Peacock Feathers Distress inks; patterned paper from Bo Bunny; Sakura Stardust clear glitter pen; Mod Podge Dimensional Magic; googly eyes


I originally stamped the greeting in black, and as soon as I did I thought NO! Ombre! So I did it again, and I like it way better. I traced over it with the Stardust pen, traced around the rectangular panel, and scribbled on the fish scales. The fish are all coated with DM for magical shiny-fication.

Here's the sketch, which is open until tomorrow:
