Birthday Fishes In The Male Room


     Fish or fishing is the new theme at The Male Room this fortnight, any masculine project following this theme is eligible for our new challenge.
     As luck would have it I found these stamps in a charity shop, just what I was looking for, not only were there stamps but a couple of dies too.
     Using Stazon I stamped the jar and fish on acetate, then coloured the reverse with marker pens.
    To stick the acetate on the card without any glue showing meant I added double sided sticky sheet before die cutting them, all over sticky doesn't show as much as a small blob would.
     I wanted the fish to look at each other so one has the colouring underneath and one on top.
     I stuck the jars on to a white card blank and then spritzed it with blue iridescent ink spray, making sure to carefully wipe the excess off the acetate.
     The greeting was generated on the computer and die cut, I coloured the inside area with the same marker used to colour the water in the jars, then mounted it on foam pads on the card.
     It all looked a bit bare so I found a fine tip marker and drew the wavy lines around the edges, it made all the difference.
     We have some new DT members at The Male Room so please pop over and see all their fishy inspiration, then come and join us with your project.
