Primitive Fish with A Colorful Life Designs

Hi friends - Today I have a couple of  cards for Father's Day both made with A Colorful Life Designs' Stencil called Primitive Fish.

Here is the stencil picture from the website for A Colorful Life Designs:
You know if I make one card, I make at least two or three. For this card I was playing with Ranger Ink's Distress Oxides: Twisted Citron, Salvaged Patina, Prize Ribbon and Mowed Lawn and ink blended through the Primitive Fish Stencil onto Hammermill Smooth Paper.
Just a unique colorful background with a simple focal point for a masculine card for Dad.
The card below was more of a mixed media version. I sprayed a piece of Vicki Boutin's American Crafts All the Good Things Foundation Paper Mixed Media Paper: I used Pixie Spray on the back of the Primitive Fish stencil, waited just a minute, then laid the stencil onto the mixed media paper rolling the stencil down with my Tim Holtz Medium Brayer.
For the cool colorful background I used some Deco Art Media Misters Yellow Green and then Distress Spray Stain in Peacock Feathers and Mustard Seed.
The white circles are a snippet of a die by Art by Marlene Studio Light BM02, seems to be discontinued. I just wanted another layer of somethin' somethin'.
The sentiments inside and out are from Waffle Flower's Stamp Set: Home Brew.
Happy Father's Day is just perfect in this font:

  2. What a fabulous snippets card Anita - in fact both are gorgeous! O love your white circles die cut you added to your snippets entry - it looks just like well behaved bubbles - along with the amazing background. I expect you'll find we're not so well behaved in the Snippets Playground though!
