ColourQ & Moxie Fab Tissue Paper is Magic

Welcome to the fish bowl. A few of you commented yesterday that the background felt like it was an underwater scene. I too had the feeling after I finished my background yesterday.  I actually created a few fish to fit into that scene using the Colour Q colors.  Somehow I ended up with fish and flowers.  Hence a fishy post today! I had to create something to hold my fish and I used the colors from the  ColourQ Challenge #82 and crepe paper seaweed for the  Moxie Fab Challenge - Tissue Paper is Magic challenge. 


The background of the fishbowl and the crepe paper are misted with Chalkboard Glimmer Mist. (Decadence, Peacock, Sprout).

The fish are from Inkadinkado using their new clings. (They worked wonderfully). The fish are stamped on watercolor paper using Ranger black archival ink. Colored with watercolor markers and waterbrush.  They were highlighted with a little white gel pen.  The sentiment is Hero Arts.  The fun part was nestling the fish into the seaweed and putting on the acetate front. Which is bowed to create the bowl effect.

A great little birthday card for one of my DD's friends.

Here is the inspiration color photo:

Have a wonderful Thursday!
