Be Unique

Hi Crafting Peeps,

Well it certainly feels like Winter is on its way here in Sydney.  We've had stormy weather for the last couple of days and its been very dark and wet!  So it seemed appropriate that my card for my Whimsie Doodles post should feature some water!  I decided to use this digi a little differently and make a shaker card.

The fab original image is called School of Fish and yes, the sentiment does come with it :)

I printed the image twice on Xpress It cardstock, with one of the images flipped.  I coloured in three of the cute fishes and the gravel with my copics, cut them out and added some glossy accents to the fishes eyes.  I completely cut out the centre of one of the fish bowls and replaced it with acetate. I lightly inked the card base with some SSS seaglass ink and glued the gravel directly to the base.  I mounted the fish on foam pads. I then put the shaker together with the addition of seed beads.  I added some doodlebug sprinkles as bubbles.  After I had done all that I realised that I had forgotten to print my sentiment onto the cardstock - duh!!!  Hence the stuck on sentiment :(  Never mind....there is always next time!

Whimsie Doodles Digital Stamp - School of Fish
Simon Says Stamp Ink - Audrey Blue and Seaglass
Doodlebug Sprinkles - Swimming Pool
Seed Beads - White, Crystal and Silver
Glossy Accents

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
