FRIDAY, March 11, 2011-Fish You Were Here

What cute images for fish you will find in this set. This is just one of 4 fishies, not to mention the cute sentiments to go along with them. I didn't use one on the front of this card . . . there just wasn't room.

I stamped the image and clear embossed it before coloring with Copic markers. I then cut/embossed it with a Spellbinders Classic Inverted Scalloped Circles, then I left it in the die, masked it and airbrushed the blue around the image. I mounted that onto a white circle which was stamped with the seaweedy stuff (that's the technical term). The card is a shaped one, which is cut/embossed using Spellbinders Beaded circle die with all that mounted onto the front. I then covered the image with crystal effects and sprinkled it with dazzling diamonds while it was still wet. It makes it look wet, don't you think? And you can never have too much sparkle.
