Fishes Wedding Wishes

Fishes Wedding Wishes
Made this card for my younger cousin brother who is having his wedding dinner reception this coming Sunday night. The Chinese tradition wedding ceremony was done yesterday and the registration of marriage (ROM) was done few months back.


Deconstructed Sketch No. 102
I adopt the sketch from Deconstructed Sketch No. 102 as shown above for this card. I thought do not want to use fishes for his wedding wishes card (as the previous one was on fishes as well) but I could not as his wife Christian name is 'Fish'. Thus, it is more appropriate to use fishes for his wedding card. :P


Close-up : The male fish
I use The Alley Way Stamps (TAWS) freebie fish to make this wedding wishes card. The mirror fish and the original fish are printed on a white card stock and trimmed accordingly. The mirror fish whose is the male fish is colored with yellow shaded Copic marker while the original fish whose is the female fish is colored using orange shaded Copic markers. The background is distressed with blue ink to create the water effect. Blue shaded Copic marker is used to highlight the lining of the fishes.
Close-up : The female fish

Close-up : The male and female fish
The background pattern paper full of hearts (which give me a feel of ocean full of loves!) is used by attaching it to a cream card base. Then, the colored fishes is attached onto the pattern paper as in the sketch. Some touch-up are added to the fishes such as the hat for the male fish and ribbon for the female fish. I also added a googly eye for each of the fishes.


Close-up : Sentiment
As for the sentiment, it is stamped onto a red fishtail or banner in gold ink. It is attached onto the card as in sketch. Two (2) gold gems are added to the side of the sentiment.

You're the Best Art Teacher!

I am in the midst of burning midnight oil to make eight (8) Teachers' Day cards for my daughter tomorrow, Thursday morning. I suppose to make them earlier when I got my Sweet Stamp Shop School's Out stamp but my day job and life leaves me no extra time for card making! Thus, I am burning the midnight oil now!


You're the Best Art Teacher!
The first Teacher's Day card is a card for teacher who teaches both Science and Art (I wonder how Science and Art connected to each other). However, my daughter favor her to teach Art more. Thus, I address the card to solely Art teacher.


Freshly Made Sketches #87 - A Sketch by Jennifer T
I adopt the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #87 - A Sketch by Jennifer T as shown above. However, I decided to clockwise the sketch. I choose simple sketch and keep my card as minimal as possible as I need to make eight (8) Teachers' Day cards.


Close-up : Self-made apple pattern paper
Since this is a card for an Art teacher, I make extra effort on this card (just to impress the teacher). I make my own pattern paper by stamping rows of apples onto a white card stock. The apples are colored in red and green alternatively using Copic markers. Then, it is attached onto a pink card base.


Close-up : Sentiment panel
A yellow panel is trimmed accordingly. The sentiment is stamped onto the panel before attaching to the apple pattern paper as in sketch.


Close-up : Apple as embellishment
Another two (2) apples are stamped onto a white card stock, colored using Copic marker and trimmed accordingly. They are then attached to the yellow panel as in sketch using pop dots.

I won (or get picked) at the recent Ribbon Carousel Second Birthday Blog Hop! I am just so lucky as there are so many participants! Even there are a number of gift sponsors and a bunches of chances, I really lucky to get picked!
