Fishy by the tide

I got this By the Tide set in recently and I finally got the chance to ink it up.  I love this set!  I find it very hard creating scenes though.

I sponged the background in Island Indigo and Pool Party with a Stampin' Up! sponge.  I use a craft mat so I dab it on that and then start in a circular motion on my Whisper White card stock.  Then I stamped the fish in Old Olive, seahorse and shell in Crisp Cantaloupe, and cut them out.  I colored the fish in with Island Indigo and an aqua painter.  I colored the seahorse with Crisp Cantaloupe and the shell as well.  Then I added some Tangerine Tango for shading on the shell and also some pool party.   Then I added shimmer with my Wink of Stella clear pen.  It's very hard to see in the picture.  This is why I have a crooked photo.  I tried everything!

I need to practice more with the scenes.  I'm not really sure about the placement here.  I think I would add another fish in the future.  I just had to get it done and in the mail for my sister-in-law.

Thanks for looking and let me know if you have any questions or comments!

Another really cute card! Love the fish and the font on those stamps is great, wish my handwriting looked like that :)

Hope you're having a great day and week!

Terrific card. The background is so pretty. Great technique. I haven't tried that yet.
