Rock n Roll Angel Fish

 

MultiAngelFish.RockandRollI made this card for my DH on his birthday. I am still experimenting with Tangerine Tango, and certainly making the most of  “Ocean Commotion” for male cards. I combined two techniques for the fish. Firstly I used Sahara Sand, Basic Grey and Going Grey markers (from the neutrals set) to colour the fish, and then I used a technique called Rock and Roll to add a contrasting colour around the edge.

After cutting out the fish, I adhered one flat, another with a dimensional, and the third with a non SU dimensional which has a greater depth. This gives a greater 3D effect adding to the realism of the fish. Combine this with some DSP and an embossed greeting from the set Sincere Salutations and your finished.

ocean.markersOcean Commotion was featured in the Summer Mini Catalogue and has made it into this years Ideas Book and Catalogue. It is a great set for some male cards. I love using my Markers. There is so many possibilities to how you can use them. One is to use contrasting colours and colour in different portions of your stamp image. Then “huff” on your stamp to re-moisten the ink before stamping.
