Swimmingly

It is National Aquarium Month ~ who knew?
The Splitcoaststampers challenge today is celebrating, and this is my sample card.
I used glitter cardstock for my water, and stencilled the blue on using a bubble stencil and Nuvo Mouse.
Once that was dry I added glossy accents to the bubbles and put aside for that to dry. I stamped, die cut and styled the fishes, along with die cutting the top panel with the two dies and stamping with the seaweed in the blues. To put my card together, I first added the foam strips to my top panel and attached to the base, then arranged where I wanted my fish and attached them using foam dots. And, I added Wink of Stella to the fishes eyes, just because!
What ... no sequins! Giggles, no need for anything else
on this card. 
Thanks for visiting my blog ... see you next time.

Oh, sweet Kia, this is beautiful! I love these beautiful goldfish, and your "bowl" is perfect filled with the beautiful aerated water...hehe! Amazing how beautifully sparkly it is, and what a great layout! I saw the CAS challenge was with fish, and we'll see whether I can make a quick Father's Day card with a digi I just realized I had...giggling thinking that I had no fish! LOL! Hugs and love! xoxo
