Wedding Fishes

Wedding Fishes - Front
Made this card for my high school best friend, Teresa Lau and his partner, Eric Chu whose are having the wedding dinner reception tonight. I am so happy that she finally found someone she willing to tie the knot with!

MFT Wednesday Stamp Club Challenge #104 (MFTWSC104)
I adopt the sketch from MFT Wednesday Stamp Club Challenge #104 (MFTWSC104) sketch/challenge as shown above for this card. The Alley Way Stamps (TAWS) BE Inspired Challenge #18 photo (as shown below) has prompted me to use their freebie fish to make a wedding wishes card mostly because of the red cozy bed and presents. Since my best friend wedding reception is in December and after Christmas, I just cannot shake of the idea of wedding wishes card once I saw the photo!

Close-up : The male and female fish
The mirror fish and the original fish are printed on a white card stock and trimmed accordingly. The mirror fish whose is the male fish is colored with orange shaded Copic marker while the original fish whose is the female fish is colored using pink shaded Copic markers. The background is distressed with blue ink to create the water effect. Blue shaded Copic marker is used to highlight the lining of the fishes.

Close-up : Sentiment
Pattern paper with 'double happiness' in Chinese character, '喜喜' and Chinese related images is used as the overlay of the background as shown in the sketch. The round tab punch is used to decorate the upper left corner of the pattern paper. The sentiment is stamped on the gold round tab with red ink. Then, the pattern paper is attached onto a red square card base.

Close-up : The hearts bubbles
The colored fishes is attached onto the patter paper as in the sketch. Some touch-up are added to the fishes such as the hat for the male fish and ribbon for the female fish. Two (2) lines of white pearl hearts are attached to the fishes like they are blowing out bubbles. A big red gem heart is attached to the top of the white pearl hearts to represent two-in-one. The same red gem heart also attached to the sentiment. I thought of make-up for the female fish but the ribbon make it quite impossible. So, I settle to add a googly eye for each of the fish and some silver lining to both of the eyes to make it more interesting.
