Puffer Fish Birthday

I love love love puffer fish.  They're so creepy cute!  I masked and created a cluster of puffer balloons being hauled along by another puffer. The googly eyes are like icing on the cake. Mmm . . . icing.

I'm entering this in The Paper Players #400 Celebration, Seize the Birthday Anything Goes

The Details:  Hero Arts I'm a Puffer for You, Craftin Desert Divas Ocean Borders, stencil made on my Cameo ages ago, Distress Oxides, Darice Googly Eyes, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics and Multiliner 0.3, Ranger Glossy Accents


  1. A rainbow of puffer fish balloons - definitely creepy cute and original! :P Awesome masking and background, too. Nice to see you over at Seize the Birthday!

  2. Fabulous, creepy yes but I have to say the buggy eyes sort of make them funny . Perfect background for them.

  3. I absolutely LOVE your fun, bright balloons, Toni. I can see how you were inspired on this one. It's fabulous. I'd love to have you play along with us at Word Art Wednesday - always Anything Goes and we have awesome prizes. I hope you will stop by to check it out when you can.

  8. You did a fabulous work on this Puffer Fish birthday card! Everything from the color choices to the texture and cuts looked great my friend. At one of the Chicago event venues I also would be attending a mermaid themed birthday party of my niece and would surely be making a DIY card for that. If you have any inspirations, please let me know.


Thanks so much for your comments. I really enjoy and appreciate them all!
