Something Fishy

Hi and welcome to another fabulous Fusion!  Check out the new challenge we have for you:

This time I was mostly inspired by the sketch, but I also carried across the bright colors from the photo to come up with this card:

These fish just crack me up!  I have been eyeing up this set for ages now and finally bought it.  I stamped and colored the fish with Copics before die-cutting them and coloring them up with clear Wink of Stella.

For the background, I die-cut the Waves Cover Plate with Hawaiian Shores cardstock and adhered it horizontally across a white card base.  I then die-cut another one from scrap card and used it as a stencil, sponging on Peacock Feathers, Broken China and Cracked Pistachio inks onto a die-cut circle.  I then matched up the "waves" with the bottom layer and adhered the circle down.  The fish are popped up on foam tape.

Thanks for visiting.  Below are links to the rest of the design team - you really should check out their fabulous cards.
