Keep Swimming Katie

How do you like this cute little fish?  The digi of a fish and the background paper is one designed by Jak Heath for "Swimming for Katie" fund raiser.  I have followed Katie this past year through her poignant blog postings about her battle with cancer.  She is having a rough time right now, so her crafting buddies got together and designed some stamps to help her out.

The little fish is cut from paper I made myself using the shaving cream technique.  All you have to do is put a few drops of re-inkers in a container of shaving cream and swirl it around.  Lay your card stock down on top of it and pat.  Lift it up blot it on a clean sheet of card stock.  Separate and lay aside to dry.  I liked the effect of the swirls on the fish.

If you would like to read Katie's story, you can find it here.  If you would like to get this or one of several other images, you can find them here.
