Oh to be a flying fish!
With scales of feathered gold
To swim the air and fly the seas
In sunshine bright and bold…
Yeah, maybe writing poetry about flying fish isn’t exactly my strong point. But how else to start a post that features a half-bird/half-fish creature on a card?
This one came about because I had used the other body parts of both animals in previous cards and had some spare bits laying around. You know me, can’t throw anything out.
So, the flying fishy was born. And bedazzled. And bedecked with a hat. I think he’s rather nice and suited the sky-themed backing papers quite well. I didn’t add any extra text or wording because I wanted it to be suitable for any occasion. And I was being lazy (as per usual). I feel it is more of a masculine card, which is good because I tend to neglect that demographic when making things. “Got any nice cards for blokes?” people ask me, and I shake my head sadly and say “No…sorry…” So maybe this one will suffice.
Hope you are having a good week – I feel it has been a long, tiresome one, with lots going on, and I am feeling a bit like a fish out of water myself.
Take care and thank you for dropping in to visit 🙂
