Birthday Fishes

Don't you just love it when you've got enough points for a freebie?  I just couldn't resist getting 'Mermaid Viviane' from Make It Crafty as she comes with a couple of separate Koi fish.  
I've coloured sea backgrounds a few times now, but wanted to try doing it a different way.  I've basically done thick lines of different blue-green shades to represent the light shining through the water.  I added some bubbles after.  The Koi fish are fussy-cut and raised up with 3D foam pads for some dimension.

Products used:
  • Card blank
  • Yellow card
  • Make It Crafty chipboard sentiments
  • Gold glitter gel pen
  • White Sakura Gelly Roll
  • ProMarkers - Burnt Orange, Bright Orange, Pumpkin, Sunflower, Cinnamon, Tan, Dusky Pink, Putty, China Blue, Rose Pink, Burnt Sienna, Caramel, Sandstone, Turquoise, Duck Egg, Cool Aqua & Tea Green
