Fancy Fish

Happy Weekend Everyone! Here's a Well Wishes
card I created for some challenges! I've been having a blast playing with these StampTangle stamps! I used the bubbles stamp on the card base (A2), colored it with distress inks, and highlighted the bubbles with a white gel pen. I stamped the fancy fish, colored it, cut it out, and attached it to the second layer. To finish the card I added the sentiment banner.

 Supplies Used:
Just For Fun Rubber Stamps ~ StampTangle Fancy Fish, Large, Bubbles, Sending Well Wishes, Archival Ink ~ Jet Black, Distress inks ~ mustard seed, mowed lawn, spiced marmalade, white gel pen, water pen, white cardstock.
