BasicGrey Gesso Fishies card

Hey You crafty people You!

Been missin' you, but today's is just a quickie post (an oldie that never got blogged.) I've been riding the migraine train (woot! woot!-not!) ;o) ...but can't wait until I can show you the tutorials I've been picking away at for later.

BasicGrey gesso fish mel stampz - Copy

The leaves are stamped using this clear Damask Floral stamp set from Paper Garden projects & an embossed version of Robin Beam's Bandanna technique (on gesso paper).

The orange-yellow gradient (for the mat) was made by
tinting yellow cardstock with a bunch of orange markers.

BasicGrey gesso fish detail mel stampz

The fish are from a mini clear stamp set by BasicGrey (called Gone Fishing.) They're embossed on patterned gesso paper. The sweet label shape they're on is made with a rubber stamp from Innovative Stamp Creations here. The scallop is a nestabilities of Urban Prairie 6x6 paper edged with Black Copic marker.

The coloured bubbles for "Thank You" were typed printed & embossed on the gesso paper then coloured with Copic markers & the dew droplets glued on.
