Have a whopper of a birthday!

I made these AGES ago and am just posting them because they seem 4th of JULYISH to me, with the red and blue striped papers! These are fun boy-birthday cards, made with the Crafty Secrets "Fishing Buds" stamp set! I stamped them on white Georgia Pacific cardstock in black brilliance ink, and then heat set the images and colored them in with my Copic markers. The sky blue color is my favorite Copic color, "Cool Shadow". The fish is colored in with Spring Dim Green, and Kewpie's skintones are done with "Skin White, E00".
The layout is classic Valerie Stangle-style, and the swirls are done with Crafty's "Flourishes" stamp set, directly onto the patterned paper. Patterned paper by My Mind's Eye (stripe) & Daisy D's (blue gingham).
Have a whopper of a weekend, everyone!
