PPA 255





Love this gorgeous combination for the Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge 255!  I enjoy making masculine cards.  I know I'm in the minority!

I used By the Tide for this one.  I started with a Hardwood background, cut the Marina Mist with a circle, stamped the seaweed, cut the Early Espresso twice and popped it up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Then I stamped the fish in Marina Mist on Whisper White.  I used an Aqua Painter to pick up some color from the Sahara Sand ink pad and did some areas a little darker for shading.  The sentiment is from a new set, Happy Happenings.  I cut it out with the Project Life labels framelits.  It's hard to see but the fish eye is glossy from Crystal Effects.

Ha! Crystal effects - I LOVE that stuff! I would have gone even further and put some on the fish to make the scales look shiny - like a fresh catch! But, I love what you did with the coloring - very cool! Thanks for playing with PPA this week :)
