A Fish Tale ATC

After sitting on the sidelines for about a year, I finally entered a challenge at the Everything Wendy Vecchi Yahoo Group.  The Making Art Challenges use Wendy's stamps.  This entry is for the MAC 6 challenge to use leaves and something green.  

I planned to make this before I left town but didn't; then my return was delayed due to the huge snowstorm in central Illinois.  To complicate things, I posted an entry, then decided I didn't like it, so did another and got it posted just at the deadline.



My entry is an ATC because it also is for our 3 for 3 ATC Swap over at the EWV Yahoo Group.  We are to follow the same guidelines as for the challenge:  something green and leaves.  Since I had all my fish embossed and fussy cut and all the leaves stamped and cut, it wasn't too hard to quickly change my background to something I liked better.

Yes, tale is a play on words!  You are so clever to catch that!

Materials:

Stampers Anonymous stamps:
Studio 490 Art By the Number (leaves from flower)
Studio 490 Art For Men (fish)

DCWV Linen paper pack (blue paper for fish)
Versa Mark clear stamp pad
Ranger Fine Silver embossing powder
Turquoise embossing powder
foam pop dots

DCWV Summer Dream paper pack (turquoise green for ATC)
Cuttlebug embossing folder


Ranger Iced Spruce Distress Ink (leaves, word strips and embossed swirls)
Black ric rac trim from stash
Computer generated word strips
