Keep Swimming


'Tis the season for all things beach and ocean themed.  I have inked up my new Just Keep Swimming Stamp from Technique Junkies.  Can you hear the sound track?  The whole time making this card I thought of Finding Nemo, of course.  And these fish remind me of the large ugly ones at the end of the movie, lol!

I love how comedic they are!  My fish were watercolored with Ken Oliver Colorbursts on mixed media paper. SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT- If you were considering getting Colorbursts, they are 40% off at Blitsy right now!  Actually, everything is 40% off right now!  
I then fussy cut the fish out.  

 As far as the background goes, I used the Wavy Weave Stencil from A Colorful Life Designs.  I inked up the stencil itself with some Distress Oxide inks and then spritzed it with water.  I flipped the wet stencil onto my watercolor paper to get this effect.  I sponged a little bit of ink at the bottom of the card to give the sea a bit more depth.  
Once the background was complete, I stamped the image with my MISTI so I could stamp it a couple of times as I was stamping onto fairly rough watercolor paper.   Then I glued the fussy cut, colored fish onto the stamped fish on the card.  I drew in some bubbles and used Crystal Effects on the fish eyes and on the bubbles.  Everything was spritzed with some Irridescent Shimmering Bliss Topper from Technique Junkies. 
So the question is, is that a net behind the fish, or is it the sun reflecting in the water? 
I'll let you decide!  

Lastly, you can save 10% at Technique Junkies should you decide to shop there!
