Gills night out!


I went back today and got a good picture of this card.  I made a ATC like this years ago for a swap. I thought I was so smart but after making over 15 I adjusted my attitude.  Any way this little cute image from Deedee's Digi's and its called 'Best Fishes'.  I colored the fish with my Copic's then mounted it on white card stock for my first layer, then I added Colorbok Shore Pak DSP and cut out the largest Spellbinder oval I had for this challenge.  I then added my yellow SU card stock my salutation and then started on the fish.  Remember Dep the hair gel?  Oh sorry some of you aren't as old as dirt, well its blue hair gel and perfect to use for a water effect.  When watered down a little put it in a baggie smoothed out and put over a little paper fishy.  The air left in the bag will come up as air bubbles

and look like fishies in water.  Because of the glare I had to stand up the card so it looks like he's half out of the water but when the card is laying down and as much of the air as can be expected is removed from the bag it's enchanting.  Now if you have a little that pokes it or chews on it I would not make this card cause that stuff tastes AWFUL!!!
Well I'm off to enter myself in Deedee's challenge http://www.craftingwithdeedeesdigis.blogspot.com/
See you all soon.
God Bless,
Jeanine

How FUN, Jeanine! You colored the fish beautifully, and that gel bag is such a clever idea -- it really does look like the fish is in water! You are always trying such clever things like this -- I love seeing the new things you come up with! Hugs, Deedee

This is wonderful Jeanine! I do remember that hair gel and use to use it a lot! Lol! I love how you did this card and this technique is amazing. Maybe you should do a tutorial and show us all how can be more creative like you. Hugs.
