O-fish-ally Awesome!

I’m on a roll with this new stamp set from Beth Duff Designs. The kawaii images are just too cute! I colored my images with alcohol markers and fussy cut them with my handy dandy Scan ‘N Cut. To give the edges a clean look, I went around them with a black Sharpie marker (quick tip – outline edges from the back side; you’ll be able to get into tight corners without ruining the pretty side).

For the layers, I made a white A2 card base. I added a stitched rectangle cut out of pattern paper from Queen & Co. A smaller stitched rectangle was cut out of a piece printed with a digi-stamp from Beth Duff Designs. I also cut a strip of yellow cardstock with a stitched strip of ease die that would act as a tray for my sushi. Before assembling the pieces, I figured out the placement and stamped the sentiments. “It’s o-fish-al!” is included in the Roll with Me set; “you’re awesome” is from Lawn Fawn.

To assemble the card, the largest rectangle is glued flat onto my card base. The next two layers are popped up with foam tape. More foam tape pops up the sushi, wasabi, and part of the chop sticks. (I glued one point of a chopstick down flat, before popping the wasabi up on top of it.) For the finishing touches, I accented some of the images with Wink of Stella. To create roe, a layer of Glossy Accents topped the center piece of sushi and I sprinkled on red microbeads. I added another layer of Glossy Accents over the top to seal in the beads. I also dotted all of the eyes and glazed the shrimp and other piece of fish with more Glossy Accents. What do you think? I’m pretty proud of the roe idea; I think it turned out great! (And I finally have a use for the red microbeads I’ve had in my stash for 15+ years, lol.)
