Best Fishes

When I saw this Diver Dan stamp I just had to have him! Isn't he just too cute? This card was a blast to make... I loved watercolouring the sea floor and making the seaweed and the coral as bright as I could possibly make it! In person this card looks a lot brighter and sparklier (hey, a new word from the weird and wonderful language of Amy)... there is kindyglitz on the coral, the rock and on Dan's flippers hair and hands where I thought he would be moving through the water.

Back in the day (the day being about three years ago) I had a housemate who was a dive master... he wasn't a Diver Dan... he was Diver Dave. Actually, if Dave read this he would be quite concerned about my return to the use of the word 'flippers'. He couldn't express more that they were called 'fins' and all use of the word flippers was banned! Ah well... flippers sounds funnier!
