The Moxie Fab Offset Scallop Gallop {whew}!

As I mentioned before, I love Moxie Fab World. It is one of the first blogs I read every day, and the challenges are perfect - mostly inspiration challenges, which by their very nature are open-ended. It's always up to you what you create from your inspiration - as in, which aspect inspires you. There's always lots of eye candy and ideas to go with, and you can tell they put a lot of work into the blog. And, let's face it, prizes don't hurt either!

Anyhow, for this challenge, the awesomely named Offset Scallop Gallop, I was a bit stumped. I don't have any edge punches (although I covet them) or any edging dies (although I also, even more so, covet these). I have a corner rounder, and I've done scallops with that, so I thought, hey, Bob's my uncle, I'm good to go. Now what to do with the challenge?

Supplies: Blue shimmer floral paper from K&Co;
glitter papers from a miscellaneous package;
fish stamp by Inkadinkado, stamped onto Basic Grey Gypsy paper,
then painted with yellow sparkle fabric paint;
Dollar store "dew drops", googly eye
It came to me in the shower. It's also impossible to photograph or scan well. I swear, this is the clearest I could get it. I blame the sparkle. I must say, it didn't turn out quite like I had hoped it would, but I still like it. Sparkle makes me happy! It might be a while before my hand regains feeling after punching each one of those scallops, though.
