Birthday Fishes

Hello there, today I have a card to share using a few of the items from the Hero Arts March 2019 My Monthly Hero release. I really love the new Bubbles Bold Prints background and thought it would work perfectly with the goldfish.

I started off by creating the background. I masked off the top of the Bubbles Bold Prints and stamped this on to watercolour paper using Versamark Ink. I applied Detail White Embossing Powder and heat set. I then applied ink using a blending brush. I used Aquatic, Deep Ocean and Indigo inks. The excess was buffed off with a dry towel. This panel was then adhered to an A2 white card base with tape runner.

I took two of the goldfish from the Pet Goldfish stamp set and stamped these on to white cardstock with Intense Black Ink. I coloured them using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies section) and cut them out using the Pet Goldfish Frame Cuts. I took the sentiment from the Fishy Stamp & Cut set and stamped this on to Pitch Black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied the same detail white embossing powder and heat set. This was cut in to a strip and added to the card with foam tape. I then added the goldfish above.
