2 Cute Ink New Release Blog Hop: Week 3

It’s time for January’s final Blog Hop over at 2 Cute Ink!  Three more Valentine’s Day digital images are being released today, so join in the fun and hop along with us!  Leave a comment on the DT blogs for a chance to win all three of today’s new releases!
Here is the order of today’s Blog Hop:

*Melissa (You are here!)*
I chose to use the adorable new fish called Best Fins for my project!  With little ones in my house, I immediately thought of those popular kid snacks (I like ’em too…), Pepperidge Farm Goldfish!  The preferred flavor in our family is the Flavor Blasted Xtra Cheddar.  I’d bought some little buckets from the Dollar Spot at Target a little while ago, and thought I’d use one to make a little snack gift for a child!  I colored the image with Copic markers, creating the little dot pattern on the bigger fish with my colorless blender.  I used some strong sticky tape to adhere the pieces to the bucket.  The sentiment on the top says, “Big Hug.”  After putting this together, I realized I could have put some Hershey’s Hugs in the bucket instead.  Next time.

Stamps –  2 Cute Ink (Best Fins – digital), SU (sentiment)

Paper – Copic Blending Card, SU Melon Mambo CS
Ink – SU Melon Mambo

Accessories – SU oval punch, Nestabilities (oval), SU Melon Mambo polka dot ribbon
Coloring – Copic Marker

**Now head on over to the oh-so-creative Suzanne’s blog for more fun and inspiration for the new digi stamp release!

    What a charming idea!! Although in my house, the “child” that is addicted to goldfish is my husband…he keeps those giant boxes hidden in his office space.

    Here I thought we women were the only ones that kept stashes of goodies hidden! 🙂

    Lynn, I am a bucket collector, I'm afraid! 🙂 I see a cute little bucket and, half the time, it ends up in my cart! Aargh! Love these clear ones, though, for gifts!!
