It's alphabet time. I'm host to this swap too and we are on the letter J. The last time I was in a swap like this I got carried away and used three J words at once, so I was a little stuck for options this time. Luckily I found this little guy hidding in my cupboard.
The set is Fishy Friends. His main cardstock color is tempting turquoise with orchid opulence and a green that I got from a michaels pack. I stamped the Jellyfish on white cardstock with black ink and then watercolored him with orchid opulence and turquoise around to look like water. I cut the green and orchid curvy with my creative memories cutter. I then stamped a happy birthday sentiment (from all year cheer ll) on one half. I then put both pieces through my cuttlebug using swirls on one and small bubbles on the other. Once pieced back together I stuck it onto the main card. I then mounted the image on dimensionals so it stands out a little.
Note to Sonya: I was most of the way though making these when I saw you used the same stamp for your J swap too.LOL. Great minds think alike. I love your card (sorry, I peeked). Looking forward to it getting here. Hope you like mine. It should be with you soon. Hugs Nic.
