Somethings Fishy!

Tomorrow is my brother's birthday, so I made him this fun card. The inside says: You can't REALLY be having ANOTHER birthday already!? Can't poke too much fun at his age since he is younger than me. hehehe
The fish were stamped with Black Stazon and then masked so I could sponge the water over them. I punched a scrap piece of paper with the scallop edge punch and laid that down and sponged along the edge to create the waves. The seaweed was created using the leaf image from Great Friend. When I was happy with my background, I pulled the post-it masks off my images and finished by watercoloring them. This is such a fun set! On the Tangerine layer I also used the matching Lazy Days jumbo wheel. I really wanted to use some crystal effects on top of the fish, but I had to hurry and get the card in the mail and didn't want to have to wait for it to dry...that's what I get for waiting til the last minute I guess. Next time...

Thanks for popping in to visit...enjoy your day!
