Fishes Wedding Wishes

Fishes Wedding Wishes
Made this card for my younger cousin brother who is having his wedding dinner reception this coming Sunday night. The Chinese tradition wedding ceremony was done yesterday and the registration of marriage (ROM) was done few months back.


Deconstructed Sketch No. 102
I adopt the sketch from Deconstructed Sketch No. 102 as shown above for this card. I thought do not want to use fishes for his wedding wishes card (as the previous one was on fishes as well) but I could not as his wife Christian name is 'Fish'. Thus, it is more appropriate to use fishes for his wedding card. :P


Close-up : The male fish
I use The Alley Way Stamps (TAWS) freebie fish to make this wedding wishes card. 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 yellow shaded Copic marker while the original fish whose is the female fish is colored using orange 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 : The female fish

Close-up : The male and female fish
The background pattern paper full of hearts (which give me a feel of ocean full of loves!) is used by attaching it to a cream card base. Then, the colored fishes is attached onto the pattern 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. I also added a googly eye for each of the fishes.


Close-up : Sentiment
As for the sentiment, it is stamped onto a red fishtail or banner in gold ink. It is attached onto the card as in sketch. Two (2) gold gems are added to the side of the sentiment.


Close-up : Punched pink heart and red heart shaped gem
A pink punched heart is attached to the front of the fishtail or banner. A red heart shaped gem is added to the center of the pink punched heart.

Dimension : 12.7cm x 19.05cm or 5" x 7.5"
Type : Vertical fold
Inlay : None
