By the Tide with scored waves

Stampin' Up's spring/summer catalogue is full of gorgeous things but my favourites are the By the Tide stamp set which is making me so happy and my Borders score board which is great fun too. Here's a masculine card I made with the fish from the stamp set and some great texture courtesy of the scoreboard:

Card using By the Tide from Stampin' Up

The fish were stamped on the Crumb Cake panel and coloured with markers from the Subtles collection. I added the sentiment and turned the panel over to score it. There are two sizes of 'waves' on the scoreboard and I love the stylised wave effect they give.

My daughter often comes home with stories about her boyfriend's baby sister who has recently become enthralled with dogs. Whenever the little girl sees a mutt, she points enthusiastically and cries "Dog!" She has received much praise for this accomplishment and it appears to have gone to her head. On a recent visit to proud owners of a tropical fish tank, she watched the creatures swimming about in their watery world for a few minutes before turning to her family. "Dog!" she said.

See you tomorrow for more crafting fun!

  4. Getting 'up close and personal' with fish isn't my number one priority . . . but in fish case I'll make an exception!

  7. I love the wavy scored lines and the detail on the fish is amazing Vicky :) What is intriguing me is the scary looking image to the right of your card...is it another fish or maybe it's just my imagination? lol Sarah xx

  9. Great masculine card. The fish are fantastic. You have the knack of making me interested in stamp sets that I had previously overlooked.
    I suggested your cure to Mark for his cough - surprisingly not keen!!
