Another clear stamp set by Eyelet Outlet, Fish, was used to make this "Fin-tastic News" card. I combined the greeting, fishbowl and fish images from the set with the Fish and Sandcastle Brads, Blue Pearl Bling. Also used were the Brown Glitter and Halloween Dot Washi Tapes.
I stamped the fishbowl image twice on 3" circles of watercolor paper. On one, I cut the center out just inside the outermost line. I attached that with mounting tape to the second image, colored with Copic markers. The sandcastle brad was just perfect for inside the bowl. I also stamped a mirror image of the fish so she could be looking up at her buddy. Speaking of her buddy, he's a fish brad who's just so happy he can't "contain himself".
I made a water trail using the multi-sized pearl bling. Pearls were also added across the center on the Halloween dot washi tape...the dots gave me a placement guide for the pearls and were a perfect size. I attached that over the brown glitter washi which separates the two patterned papers from an old Gina K kit.
You can't really see it from the picture, but as a finishing touch, I coated the inner fishbowl with clear Wink of Stella to give it some shimmer.
If you like the cutout effect on this card, you might also enjoy this one I made a while back.
