Rainbow Fish


A sparkly fish for the A-MUSE-A-PALOOZA glitter challenge! Glitter is one of my favorite embellishments - just adds that little something special to a simple design. And when I saw Connie's cute fishy card, it reminded me that I hadn't yet had a chance to play with my new A Muse Animal Wishes clear set! The colors for this were inspired by the children's book "The Rainbow Fish" by Marcus Pfister. For the bowl, I used my CM circle cutter to make a 2 1/8" circle, trimmed off the top, and then used the SU Word Window punch for the base. The water line is just one squiggle from the A Muse Dotted Lines bl stamp. Then the sentiment normally says "have a FAN-tastic day" so I just omitted the "A" and hand-lettered an "I" (hee, hee I just *love* doing that!).
