My Best Catch is certainly my fish loving husband.   Now he would say this isn’t his favorite species of fish. . . but, it’s a fish.   The Best Catch bundle which includes the Best Catch stamp set bundled with the Catch of the Day thinlits.  You’ll find this bundle in the Occasions Catalog.   Best Catch and the Catch of the Day thinlits will carry over to the 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up! annual catalog but won’t be available for the bundled savings.

I was pleasantly surprised at how nicely the fish colored.  I used watercolor pencils and a blender pen for the coloring.   Don’t tell my husband that I’m not exactly sure how to color this fish – which I think is a trout – but it looks good enough for me.

Check the fish out closely – do you see how the fins pop up and are 3D?  Love that the Best Catch Thinlits do this.

Here is another Best Catch example.   This card will be part of my Card Buffet this month.  Love the little hat!
