Best Fishes | Whimsy Stamps

Hello and welcome!

For today's card I'm using the Best Fishes stamp set and the Best Fishes sentiment stamp to basically create a one layer card. 

I began my card by stamping my images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto #80 Neenah Solar White cardstock. I wanted my ocean scene to have a feeling of sun rays streaming through it, I began with some light pink and blue Copic markers above the fish. With light, fast, and long strokes I filled the top of my card moving diagonally to the bottom. Then I started adding a little darker color around the sides and bottom stroking or flicking my marker upwards and diagonally. 

Once I finished with the water I began coloring the stamped images also with Copic markers. I trimmed the colored panel with a stitched rectangle die from my stash and adhered it to a blue card base using liquid glue.

I added Iridescent bubbles above the fish to emulate air bubbles, then added white highlights and shimmer with my Nuvo Shimmer pen. 

And don't you just love the way the sentiment comes down the fishing line? That's so cool! 

That completes my card today, I hope you enjoyed!
