Fish Doodles

Hello there!  It's another Stampendous Dreamweaver Thursday and this week we're doing something fun!  We're Sten-tangling, Zentangling or just plain ol' doodling!  I have to admit, Zentangle is not my thing so I just doodled!  I've been doodling for years so this was super fun for me!  Since summer is almost here, I decided to make it summery and somewhat masculine.  This card would work well for  a teen boy in particular.  Here's my card:

Here's what I used to create this card:

Faber-Castell® PITT Artist Pen, Black 190, Medium Point
Strathmore® Mixed Media Paper, 400 Series
Bo Bunny® Barefoot & Bliss 12x12 Barefoot Word
Yellow Orange Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
Dylusion® Inks in Calypso Teal, Pure Sunshine, Lemon Zest, Squeezed Orange
Glue® Dots Brand Adhesives
Zip Dry Paper Glue by Beacon Adhesives

Here's what I did to create this card:

Tape stencil down on mixed media paper and outline stencil with black pen
Remove stencil and doodle designs into different sections of the fish
Water down teal ink and brush onto paper around fish
Paint yellow and orange inks onto fish, set aside to dry
Create vertical A2 card base with a tent fold
Trim background paper to fit as shown
Trim fish image to desired size
Trim a mat for image in the same paper as base
Adhere all layers as shown
Attach glue dots and add micro glitter onto each dot being sure to burnish glitter into dots

Here are my teammates that are playing along this week and have projects to share with you:

Lea Kimmel (me!)
Tenia Nelson

That's it for me today!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  I'll have another project to share with you tomorrow so please do stop back by and have a look!  In the meantime, have a wonderful day and I'll see you again soon!



  1. Beautiful Lea! I haven't played with that stencil yet...need to get it out!

  2. Lea, did you add the color after your tangling? Beautiful!

    1. Added it after I tangled with a paint brush dipped in the Dylusion bottles. I did water down the blue considerably.

  3. Is it crazy how much I love that tangled fish? Looks fabulous Lea! Thank you for sharing this week!

  4. I love your fishy! Such vibrant colors.

  5. Lea...your fish is fabulous! Can you believe summer is finally here and we are pulling our our ocean and seaside stencils and stamps! This guy is ready to warm up the shore!
