Pile It On! Challenge - Humour/Puns

We have another fun new Pile It On! Challenge starting today and the theme is:

'Humour/Puns'

Our sponsor this month is Dr Digi's House of Stamps:
Prize - 2 Digi Stamps of the Winner's Choice!

I used a cute set of fish stamps from Hambo called 'Fish Trio'...coloured them using watercolour pencils, then carefully cut them out. I made a simple 'ocean' background from a few snippets of blue card...torn along the top to look like waves. I stamped the 'birthday' part of a Hero Arts sentiment stamp (from the 'Anytime Messages' set) along the top, then added the word 'fishes' using a black gel pen...it looks much lighter in the photo, but in real life there's no difference in colour. I popped the fishes on top using some 3D foam pads.


Here are the challenges I've piled on:


For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Pile It On! Challenge.

Fun card! Looks like it would also fulfill the requirement of "three consecutive colors on the color wheel" for the Less is More birthday challenge ...
