Swimming By............

It's summertime!!!....and HOT!  I wish I was swimming with these little fish today - or even just sticking my toe in a puddle of water.  Yes, it's that hot.  I'm ready for winter now..........

I used the stamp set called Gill Friends to create my card today.  Even though you can't see it in the photo, the two white die cut panels have been popped up with dimensional tape to make the "water" appear recessed.

I'd like to enter this in the MFT Sketch Challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.which is Fun in the Sun.  I'll also enter this in The Male Room challenge (fish/fishing)
(




Thanks for stopping by..........

What a cool birthday card! Love the curvy white panels with the recessed water and fish! A brilliant creation my friend, just brilliant!

MaryH said...

You are just doing so many unique & unusual layouts, and this is another one I really like! You can see the dimension because it's created a nice little subtle shadow on the panels. This is just adorable...good job! Stay inside, stay cool. It was 99 at 6pm here. Hope it cools off enough for Mr. to mow later. Hoping to get some rain tomorrow afternoon. Hugs & TFS

So cute! Wish I could be in a pool too. Right now I would settle for a kiddie Pool to cool off!

Oh, how fabulously creative, Lynn! Love your take on that sketch. I never would have thought of that but I do love it. I may even have to CASE it, my friend. :-D Great idea to use dimensional tape.

I can tell your white panels are popped up Lynn! And the water does look recessed back, I love it! The fish really look like they are swimming right by me. lol Such a cute card for summer. Wish you could come here and enjoy the pool with me! Stay cool, but I don't want winter here yet. lol Hugs, Brenda

Love this clean, simple take on the fishing theme - they're so brightly coloured swimming in the stream! Thanks so much for playing along with the Fish/Fishing theme at The Male Room. Deborah, DT xx
