MFT June Release Countdown Day 4

Birdie Brown has gone aquatic this month, with a cute set of Gill Friends--
fresh and salt water aquarium fish. You can also build an aquarium with the
new Aquarium Die-namics to give your fish a happy place to live.

A brick wall was stenciled on white card stock, cut with the rectangle die and
adhered to a white card base. The fish were colored with Copics and cut with
the matching Die-namics. Some color was stenciled on watercolor card stock with
the Drifts and Hills Stencil--blue for the water and beige for the sandy bottom.

I assembled the aquarium and stamped the plants and adhered the fish. The
aquarium was adhered to the brick background and I stamped the sentiments
and finished off with some googly eyes for the fish.

 When I saw the sentiments in the set, I had to make a second card. After several
unsuccessful attempts at mirror stamping, I decided to use two different fish
as the "kissers".

Smaller fish in the set were stamped with gray ink for the background. Two fish
were popped up on the card and I added the white embossed sentiment and
finished off with enamel dots. How cute is that?
