April Stamp of the Month "O-fish-ally Awesome"

Welcome to the Australasian Stamp of the Month blog hop, if you arrived here from Doreen's blog  you are in the right place. If you arrived by chance to continue the hop, click on the link at the end of this post.

This stamp set is  O-fish-ally Awesome, lots of great images that I can see being used for many different projects. My projects are all pretty different.

I've had cats for most of my adult life, and they brought much fun to my life, but after the last one died about six years ago I decided that I wouldn't have anymore pets. It was now so much easier if I wanted to go away, I didn't need to get someone to look after them for me. Then about five years ago I thought maybe I would get some goldfish. I first got six but for some reason two died but the remaining four lived happily together and grew bigger and fatter in my pond. 

I thought I would try to manipulate the fish bowl stamp to see if I could create a bowl vase and I am very happy with how it turned out. I used the February stamp of the month for the bunch of flowers in the vase. I water coloured the flowers and used the clear shimmer brush to give them some sparkle but unfortunately it doesn't show in my photo. It really is very pretty in real life.

In these uncertain times with this terrible virus affecting all of us in some way or another, even if  it's just  isolating ourselves, we have to remember to "just keep swimming" and get on with our lives the best way possible. Keep in touch with family and friends and for some of us we have more time to craft than we ever did. I stamped and coloured the fish, then embossed it. It's a really easy card to make.

Thank you for stopping by, please hop over to Danielle's Scrappy Chicks to see some more great ideas. I am sure she will have something wonderful to share.

Have a wonderful day and please take a moment and leave a comment they are always appreciated.
