Tab Punch Fish




This sample doesn't use a new catalog set, so I hope you're not too shocked. I saw a card on the SU demo site with these tab punch fish, and I just had to make one. They are too cute! The card I originally saw was by Richard Garay. Then I found the directions on making the fish on this blog: http://gone-inkognito.blogspot.com/2007/03/hes-keeper.html


The body of the fish is one full tab punch, and the tail is half of the tab (see photo). I used the scoring tool from the cutter kit and freehanded the lines for the folds. For my card, I used the paper snips to make cuts for the fins and added some Pumpkin Pie ink to make them stand out.
I used my sponge daubers to add River Rock and Sahara Sand on the bottom of the card, and I also sponged Soft Sky around the other 3 sides as well as around the bubble letters.
Give this one a try. It's easy and fun!
Supplies (All SU): Stamps: Bodacious Bouquet, Alphabits; Inks: Pumpkin Pie, Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi, River Rock, Sahara Sand; Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Soft Sky, More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie; Accessories: rounded tab punch, 1/4" & 1/2" circle punches, sponge daubers

What a darling card ~ TFS!
Sorry, but with the fisheries men that I live with, I'll have to come up with some sort of take-off on your great idea!
