Sparkly Gold Fish

I haven't been around for a while again - sorry!  I tried to think of a quirky title for this post but it is what it is - a 'sparkly gold fish'!


It looks a lot more sparkly and colourful in real life.  The background is Distress Inks and water and the fish is Dreamweaver Gold embossing paste through a Clarity stencil then sprinkled with gold glitter.  I added a black stone for the eye and some gold Card Candi to go with the gold mat which I added to a white card base.

I would like to enter this into the Clarity Stamp Challenge - which for June is 'Boys, Boys, Boys'. I made this card for my Father-in-law's Fathers Day card as I think its quite a masculine image even in gold sparkles!

Thank you so much for visiting me, I appreciate it so very much!  Take care.  Christine xxx
