One Fish, Two Fish
I chose to add the fish to the jar, because I wanted to try out my Bermuda Bay Ombre Stampin’ Pad. I thought it would be perfect for the water. I stamped the jar first in Basic Gray Archival ink, then added the stamped water. On separate card stock, I stamped the goldfish in Pumpkin Pie ink, then die-cut them with the framelits. After I adhered them “inside” the jar, I added some glue using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen to make the jar look like glass. It also sealed the fish inside. Because it’s liquid and the Pumpkin Pie ink is water based, the ink bled a bit, but the fish are in water, so they’re supposed to be a little blurry, right?
The “hello” sentiment is also part of the Jar of Love stamp set. I’m really liking the Bermuda Bay/Pumpkin Pie/Basic Gray color combination!
So, of course, I have a fish story for you. And, of course, it involves Amelia. We was off on Monday, and asked if we could try out a new Indian restaurant when he woke up Monday afternoon. Knowing that Jon loves Indian cuisine, I asked if he wanted to go as well, and – wonder of wonders – Mike was also available. So we had a “mostly family” afternoon. Sadly, Steph and Adrianna were working.
We found out that the Indian restaurant is closed Mondays, so we went to another restaurant close by. They have a fish pond inside, complete with a waterfall, volcano and lots of goldfish. Amelia loved them! She learned to imitate fish a few weeks ago, so she spent some time “talking” with them. Since she and I finished our lunch first, I took her back over to the pond while the guys finished eating. You could buy fish food for $.50 a cup, and I had to get some for her. Apparently, a lot of people fed the fish that day, because most of them weren’t that hungry. Maybe they were afraid they’d be on the buffet if they got too fat.
I had to keep reminding Miss Amelia to keep both feet on the floor. That one is a climber, and she was really trying to hop into the pond with the fish. Fortunately, I was able to distract her before she went swimming.
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy and listening to my fishy stories. Have a wonderful day!
