House Mouse Kissin' Fish

I had so much fun with this one.  I don't remember the name of the stamp, sorry.  One of my house mouse list members sent me this image, and I love it.  I have the best members in the who world ;).  Someday I will own this stamp;)  but I had to color it and when I finished I thought how am I going to layer this I used the purplish pink card stock and sparkly  blue glitter stock (you know me, somewhere there has to be glitter,  and I glittered up the water lily's and used a lattice die  cut  that I found in a sale bin someplace and then I was stumped  so I sat on the floor and thought and remembered that Mark and I had bought some avocados and they came in a green net.  Now if there is fish there has to be net somewhere right?  So that was my thinking anyway.  Then I needed flowers but I didn't have any the same color as the lilly and so I found in a corner some old white artificial flowers off  a decoration.  I cut them smaller and tried to put pointed edges like the lilly and colored them with  Copics R22 (light prawn) and R85 (rose red) and blended them with my blender pen.  Anyway I added the green stones and highlighted the card with blue chalk pad that one of my members sent me (Thank you Carlota)   Boy I am rambling aren't I.  Sorry, I guess I am talking to you since I don't have anyone else to talk to :)  Hugs, Cathy
