3D fish card

Hello, sorry it's taken me all day to post a card but I was tidying the loft this morning, then had a trip to  the tip followed by the post office. AND when I finally go round to make a card I got a little carried away and, well lets just say, it's more fancy than I'd usually do but then I love how it's turned out- just a shame it was terrible to photograph!

SO I've made a little scene using my Papersmooches surf and turf stamps, I cut out all the fishes after colouring them with bright Promarkers (I took my colour inspiration form this weeks Papersmooches Sparks inspiration photo). Next I put them all on the background which was made by blending digress inks and then spritzing with water. I also made some "sand" for the bottom and a similar way.

Then, to give dimension to the project I used Stazon on stamp and other fish, some bubbles and the sentiment onto a piece of acetate- this was then curved over the background image- ta-da, floating fish! 

I also added some glitter glue to give the feeling of bubbles......

So, what do you think? I'd love to know....

Great card, and what a clever way to make it look 3-D! I did something similar...ish before I had my blog, and had a cat watching some fish in a tank. I love it, Jo x
