Negative and Positive!

     This was pure playing but I used everything I had to make these cards.  I also drug an old SU! set out of the closet to join in the playing.  That set is called Fishy Friends.  I just love these comical sea creatures!

     I started with plain white card stock panel, and 3 Distress Oxide inks.  They were Old Paper, Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers.  Each ink was stamped using a bubble background stamp, which  found in my stash.  I cut the one panel with a inside scallop circle die, and the second panel has the inside of the circle as a background for my fish!  There are scraps of paper from Heidi Swapp, that were used as layers.  My seaweed in metallic silver, and starfish are dies from Gina Marie.  The fish in the circle uses the SU! Happy Birthday Frame to ground him.  For embellishment I used Nuvo Drops in Blizzard and Duck Egg Blue.  Nothing was wasted!

      I would like to share these over at Pixie's Snippets Playground #358, which is use snippets all the time.

     Your visit is greatly appreciated.  Hope you have a terrific Tuesday.

What a cool combo of cards!! I just love the expression on the fish's face, how cute and fun, and all the blue bubbles and color just makes me feel a whole lot cooler today, so thanks for that! Nj on both!
