Be You with Picket Fence Studios and Crafty Sale Update

Hi folks! 

Today I'm sharing a really simple card created using Picket Fence Studios Vortex of Fish stamp set.

I love this swirl of fish, it creates such a bold look.  For this card, I clear embossed the fishes on a watercolor paper panel.  I did mask one fish to create an empty spot in the swirl.  This was done by putting some washi tape over the fish I wanted to disappear.  I then inked the stamp with Versamark, and then removed the washi before stamping.

I blended Distress Oxides (Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, and Chipped Sapphire) onto the panel.  This was done in a few steps, stopping to add a bit of mist/water until I got the coverage and texture that I was looking for.

Once I was happy with the panel, I used Versafine to stamp a single fish in the area I had masked swimming in the opposite direction of the rest of the vortex.  This was then embossed using holographic embossing powder to give the fish a bit of sparkle and shine.

The sentiment was created using Thickers, and the entire panel was popped up over my card base with foam tape.

So fun, right?

I also have an update on my crafty clean out.  I still have some boxes available, and I also found a bunch more stuff which I've listed individually on IG under @mprantnercraftysale.  Lots of stuff there, and I'm really just trying to move things one to homes where people can use them, so there are things marked as low as $1. 

Thanks for stopping by!
