Happy Birthday - Sunny Day Crafting #64

Wednesday December 6, 2017
It's time for another challenge at Sunny Day Crafting #64
and the Yellow team has a new theme for you..
 "W" is for WATER
This is one of those old red rubber stamps that came un-mounted on a sheet and you had permanent grooves in your fingers from cutting them apart and close around the image..so there is no name for who this stamp was produced by.. But I love it and used it a lot. I did put it on a wood block by going to the hardwood store and cutting the chunk of wood into an appropriate size block and self adhesive foam pad and mount on the block.. any of you out there do this many many years ago?? 
 Any how like I said I use to use this a lot.. I stamped this on Bristol paper and using my Zig markers I colored the image. I used a little Wink of Stella on the fish. To me this fish is a trout so I colored it as a trout would be.. at least the ones I use to catch in the pacific northwest. The Happy Birthday is from My Favorite Things. I thought this card would be a great masculine birthday card so I didn't want a frilly happy birthday font.  I added a couple Nuvo drops by the sentiment just to give a touch of interest. Being clear they came out back. Love Nuvo Drops.
Check out the Yellow team for some awesome inspiration.

As you like it - favorite animal and why (Salmon - living in the Pacific northwest we have salmon in our ocean and oh they taste so good. one of my favorite fish to eat)

I like salmon too, although I prefer to not think about it swimming in the water while I eat it. Great to see you at the HeArtful Stamping Challenge!
