Fun at the Fish Pond

Hello My Friends!
As many of you may know, I am on holiday so with limited time
for crafting, I decided before I left to create a card to share each Monday
showcasing the latest release at the Tutti Designs Store.


Another quick and easy card but this time, using the 'Fish Pond' die ...

TUTTI-452 Fish Pond

I have used my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers for my coloring.  I was going for the look of Koi Fish ... not too bad I guess!  LOL   After coloring,  I adhered my die to a scrap piece of the darker blue water paper I used on my card from last Monday ... then fussy cut around it.  The background on this card is a lighter sheet of 12x12 water paper from a huge paper pack also from JoAnn's that a friend gave me before she moved out of the country (thanks Linda Davis)!

The Happy Birthday sentiment die is Sue Wilson 'mini expressions' which was purchased at the Dies R Us Store.

Also from the DRU Store, I've also added a few drops of Nuvo 'Glossy White' and 'Carribean Ocean' Crystal Drops to mimic bubbles.

I plan on seeing some beautiful fish during this vacation and will hopefully be able to share photos.

Wow! You make this die look super awesome amazing! I can't. I just can't. Don't make me stop visiting you, Darlene. You've already cost me plenty. I hope you see lots of beautiful tropical fish on your vacation and will share plenty of photos!

You did a cool job with the coloring of the die, and the background paper looks great with it! Nuvo drops give a great feel of air bubbles
