Birthday Fishes...


Good morning!

Today is the last day to take advantage of the store wide Anniversary Sale at Purple Onion Designs and that means there are only hours left to save 25% OFF nearly the entire store. Even the newest Under the Sea and A Pirate's Life collections by Shari Bresciani are included in the sale if you can believe that! Personally, I crossed a few cute Halloween images off my list and I can't wait for them to arrive so I can get them inky before the holiday.     

For my card today I figured what better way to wrap up a birthday celebration than with a bustling birthday party card... under the sea style of course. It looks like Mermaid is celebrating her big day with all her fishy friends. They are partying it up in a pretty colorful coral reef that is the Ocean Floor Background that I stretched to fit across the added length of this slimline design. I did this by first stamping the individual coral and rocks in the center of the card then masking them. Next I grabbed the Ocean Floor and only inked and stamped the left side of the stamp then slid it over and and did the same with the right side, making sure the lines reached my masked items. That way once the masks were removed those rocks and coral in the center hid the gap in the background. Now everyone has room to party down and have a great time. :)

Ok, thanks for stopping by and I hope your week is a crafty one!
