Best Birthday Fishes

Hello -

Today's card is going to be visiting a lot of challenges!

The backdrop is watercolored using a ziplock bag and the smooshing technique with Distress Markers.  I liked that I could flip it over and move the color around some more.  I'll be doing this again.


The stamps are Best Fishes from Simon Says Stamp, the die is from Avery Elle.

I am entering this to these challenges :

smooshing with a plastic bag looks like a lot of fun with great results - and two such cute cards as a result too!!

Let’s try this again but this time I’ll read my comment before I hit publish. LOL
Your card is adorable, Cat! I love the smooshing technique, I just always forget to use it. Thanks for bringing it to my attention again. I really like the way the colors blended on this. A fun technique for a fun card. And thanks for joining us for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge.

Those fish are darling and right at home on your smooshed background, Cat. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Just Us Girls.

Not heard of ziplock bag smooshing, Cat ... sounds fun (if messy!!). It makes for a delicious watery background for your cute fish ... this is adorable! Hugs, Anita :)
