Quirky Reminder Time! Make Us Laugh!

It's time to remind you about my challenge over on the Quirky Crafts Challenge blog. It's nice and easy...Make Us Laugh! We're sponsored by Crackerbox Palace who are very generously giving our winners some fabulous prizes, for first, second and third place!
Well, this is my second card, which went completely wrong! I've been using hubby's printer, as mine has three brand new ink cartridges and none of them will work! (Computer says no!) So, I press the button in my room and then nip down the hall just in time to catch his printer shooting my printed sheet out onto the floor! Only trouble is, it's nearly our of ink and instead of a nice pale blue watery background  .... it came!
I made the backing paper on the computer too, using the same fishy in different sizes, and added a big fish over the top, then round the edge of the paper added three more big fish but they all came out pink too with streaks through them.  (argh!) I thought it was a shame to waste him, so have re-coloured all the big fish with my Promakers. I've 3D-ed him, which meant cutting off fins and tails and also pulling out teeth!
The font I used is a freebie it's called 'Thinking of You' and you can download it HERE from Kevin and Amanda. I printed it as a wavy line. The yellow paper clip was at first helping to glue down the layers, but I like it, so it stayed! There isn't that many layers, I've just gone round the yellow and orange with a black pen.The lilac layer is actually coloured in with a Promarker. In side you can just see some Pink Petticoat stripy digital papers.
New Follower! Hi and a big (((Wave)))) to Bixi Sparkes....who's already following unless there's two of you! and Alicia Somers from Taylor'd scrap'n'craft  That's it! I'm not here, so I hope the timer works this week! Have a great crafty week! Thank you for stopping by!

  4. Oh Spyder, you truly are 'One in a Million' yourself - I love the humour with which you tell of your printer woes There's something 'fishy' going on if your printer won't accept 3 new cartridges. Actually, your printer issues are our gain as we benefit from your awesome 'hand' colouring skills. This is a great card that has really madde me smile. Good luck in our challenge this week.
