Swirly stuff

I haven't felt like stamping the past few days! I know it's totally shocking. I'm just super stressed and feel all yucky. I did make myself get stamping though, it did help.
This fishy card took forever! It's for this week's sketch challange over at Splitcoast Stampers. I had to make 6 masks of the fish to get them to overlap right. there are 35 of them. :) Then I colored them all and stamped swirls for the background piece. I'm sure it makes some statement about standing out, or maybe even teaching? I just think it's fun.
This one features the swirly stamps Ethel got me. Don't you love them? How can you NOT love them? And this was super fast, I think it took like ten minutes start to finish.

Wow! That fish card is awesome. What a lot of work. I hope you frame it or give it to someone really special that will apreciate all your hard work. It would be a good one to submit to the stamp company too.

Love those swirls too!

Have a great weekend!
