Something Fishy by Samantha Read

Hello, Samantha here today and I'd like to share with you my tutorial showing how I made this ocean inspired home decor project.

I began with an MDF fish shape, to begin with I was going to have my fish pointing upwards. I used just two stamp sets, the new AHOY set and a firm favourite of mine, Celestial.

I gave the fish a couple of coats of white gesso and stamped my chosen images on white card.

Then the fish changed direction as I was laying out the images.

Using acrylic paints I painted the fish, I used the hanging hole as placement for his eye and simply cut out a circle of white card and adhered in place. Using a Crop-A-Dile I added two new hanging holes.
I wanted to keep the stamped images white but added a little shading to the moon and clouds and a pop of red on the boat as red, white and blue are nautical colours.

To finish I added some twine for hanging and some holographic flake paste to sea to make it glisten in the moon light.

I do hope you like it, thank you for looking and have a lovely day, Sam.

Here are the stamp sets I used:
