Birthday Fishes

I had a bit of fun with the Birthday Buddies stamp set from Paper Smooches. This has been a favorite of mine for the last five or so years.

The Paper Smooches challenge is to make a birthday card. The My Favorite Things Day 1 is about the visual triangle. I used the fish to make a visual triangle with your eye following the three fish, with three water bubbles, then the googly eyes. I love having an excuse to use googly eyes!

The paper is MFT Birthday Brights patterned paper. I used Tombow marker colors that matched with the balloons on the paper. The fish are stamped and embossed on Bristol paper, colored with a water brush and Tombow markers from the Tropical collection. Fun challenges and a fun card to create.

  1. Thank you, Gayle! That patterned paper has so many fun patterns and I have used it for inspiration and colors, but this is probably the first time I used a large portion on a card. Fun fish and fun to color!

    1. I had to raid my daughter’s stash for the googly eyes as I could only find 2 and I needed 3. She has colorful ones, so she better hide them. They look fun to use! Thanks!!
