Birthday Fishes


My nephew is turning 8 on Sunday.  And I thought a bright cute boy card would be a nice addition to his present.


On a acrylic block, I added different shades of blue Distress Ink.  I then heavily misted the block with water.  I stamped the block on a lightly misted watercolor cardstock panel.  I repeated this several times until the panel was covered with blue ink.  After the panel was  dry, I punched several waves with a border punch.  I then layered each wave on a small card panel just gluing the bottom part of the punched border.  I then stamped several fish and colored them with Copic markers.  I also added googly eyes just for fun.  They were then fussy cut and placed in between the layers of waves.  Finally I added an appropriate sentiment.
