Best Fishes!

 I made this card quite a while ago, but I don't think it was ever posted on my blog.  I submitted it to a few magazines for publishing, and unfortunately,  it was never selected. :-(  I think this is one of my favorites!  There's some thing about these fish from Rubbernecker that make a great Birthday card!  Don't you agree?

I colored them with Prismacolor Pencils and blended the colors with Gamsol.  I shaded the background with blue chalk to resemble water.   The entire scene was created by using the masking technique and only 2 stamps.  It was so much fun to create!  The tag was computer generated and says "Best Fishes For A Wonderful Birthday!"  I added some dimension to this card by adhering it to the card front with foam tape.

Thanks for visiting today.  I hope you all have a wonderful Monday!

What's wrong with the folks at the magazines? This card rocks in my book. You know me, I love to colour so you really created one of my favourites.
