Local King Rubber Stamp Under the Sea

How about some fish for today? I made two Father’s Day Cards with the great looking fish from Local King Rubber Stamp.

Entered over at Love Handmade Cards in Flickr for the July Challenge.

I made this card for my Dad for Fathers Day. I love all the fish, octopus and jelly fish in this set and there are matching dies. I colored the stamps with water based pens and then stamped them on glossy paper. I used the matching dies to cut them out.

The background – I smooshed both Distress and Distress Oxide inks on the panel. I used an embossing ink dauber to apply the embossing ink thru a stencil and then sprinkled with Broken China embossing glaze. Then heat embossed.

Here is a look at the panel before I added the fish. I like the look a lot.

Now for the one I made for my hubby for Fathers Day.

This is close to the same as above but I used a little bit different color combo on the background but I did use Distress and Distress Oxide inks. For the stenciling I used an ink blending tool to apply the embossing ink and then also used Broken China Embossing Glaze.

The fish are the same as above.

The sentiment is stamped on the background.

A look at this panel before the fish were added.
