Something fishy

I had fun this afternoon making this mobile for a friend of our son's baby boy born last week. The dad is a keen fisherman. I cut a simple fish shape as a template and then just used scraps of different coloured card stamped with various images. Each side is a different colour of card. I used bamboo BBQ skewers painted with acrylic paint for the hangers, and some thin blue cord I had in my stash to hang the fish on. There's foam tape holding the 2 sides of each fish together, which adds a bit of dimension. Googley eyes too of course! Been using lots of them lately.
