Fish Bowl

Today I'd like to share a shaped card using the Coral Reef exclusive die from Cheapo Dies.

When I saw this die, I thought of an aquarium.  So that's what I decided to to and create.  I found some clip art and created a template.  I fussy cut the template out of white cardstock and then colored the background with various Distress Inks and Distress Oxides (Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans, Brushed Corduroy).  Goosebumps Texture Spray by Tsukineko was used to create the bubbles in the water.

Oftentimes, I treat a die cut as if it were a stamped image and proceed from there.  Today's die cut was no exception.  It was die cut from white cardstock and colored with Copic markers and colored pencils. 

A Spectrum Noir Sparkle marker gives each of the fish a shimmery look.

Be sure to visit the Cheapo Dies Blog for more inspiration from the rest of the team.
