I've admired the Cinema Saturday Challenge for some time now, but I just haven't had the guts to try it out. When I saw this week's inspiration movie, however, I decided it was time to brave it out and give it a whirl. The movie is one of my all-time faves...Finding Nemo! It's also a color challenge, and I thought the bright colors would make for a fun card. Nemo reminds me of my own little boy--he's brave and spunky and never gives up, and they are both the inspiration behind my slightly different take on a tent card.
I stamped the fishie image several times on Whisper White, cutting them all out (a good task to do while watching a movie, by the way.) To create my little "one of kind" guppie, I used a reverse stamp imager and drew in some stripes to make him into a clown fish. With a white gel pen, I colored in the stripes and added a little crystal glitter to make him stand out of the crowd. The sentiment was done on a computer, and I used the gel pen again to draw in a fishing hook. Remember, "fish are friends, not food," when it comes to cuties like this little guy!
