Julee's Mojo Monday challenge for today is a fun layout. Since the central panel was a circle, my Impression Obsession goldfish worked perfectly. Of course using my Copics, I colored the goldfish with Y17 Golden Yellow, then shaded with YR04 Chrome Orange and YR09 Chinese Orange. For the water I used BG000 Pale Aqua and the reeds are G82 Spring Dim Green and G24 Willow. I added Ranger Glossy Accents to the bubbles for some added dimension. I used my Spellbinder's Nestabilities circle die to cut out and emboss the main image as well as the green mat behind it. Using my rectangle die, I cut out and embossed the two striped panels, matting them again on green cardstock. I used my Cuttlebug bubbles embossing folder for the main panel. I have these wonderful crystals from Hobby Lobby that resemble bubbles and fit perfectly on the card. Overall a wonderful happy card. Hope you enjoy it.
I decided to create a second fish card, this time using a nice orange plaid I found in my scrap pile. Once again I used my Cuttlebug background, but this time with a wonderful metallic Stardreams paper. I think the orange co-ordinates much better than the stripe I used on the first card. I shaded the fish a little differently to show more orange. This is just such a fun little stamp.
