I have to tidy up!

I really need to tidy up and get my Tim Holtz and Avery Elle stamps off my desk, otherwise they just keep getting used ;)  No chance of a tidy up today, I've been out waging war on the weeds (they're winning!) and have a dirty big burst blister to show for my efforts.  So it's a couple of CAS cards from me tonight!

My fishies are coloured with my watercolour pencils and then covered with my clear glitter pen.  Clear gloss added to their eyes, teeth and some of the fins.  I hadn't intended to use my blue liquid pearls but had a smudge that needed covering (and my normal butterly trick wouldn't work on this card haha)
Blue strip of washi tape from stash.

I'm thinking the sentiment from my fish card would work just as well on this one!  I'm not entirely sure how such a grumpy, fierce looking dog can be almost cute at the same time!  
This dude is coloured with watercolour pencils and then mounted on dimensional squares.  I'd a couple of scraps of this DP left, so that decided my colour theme for me.  I added lots of bling and clear gloss to his collar and then some Ranger liquid pearls ... I'm lovin this stuff, I can see an addiction looming!

  2. These fish crack me up. I like the liquid pearls... it blends in with the bubbles. You'd never know they're covering up a smudge :)

  3. Fun cards! Don't know when I've seen such big teeth on fish (but they're till kind of cute). I can understand why you keep using these stamps. Every card you make with them is just super!!

  14. Both of these cards crack me up and I had a good chuckle. I do think the sentiment on the first would work for the dog card too. He has such a look on his face. Thanks for playing along with us at Seize the Birthday! Barb DT member
