Atlantis? Or in an Aquarium?
by Anne Thompson

I got caught up in the idea of fish swimming in and out of the windows in an underwater castle.  Is this Atlantis?  Or is this in an aquarium?


I started with a piece of cardstock from the OCEAN BLUE COLLECTION SP1005, the CURLING WAVES STENCIL 88624, VersaFine Clair Warm Breeze ink, and a fingertip dauber to make some waves for a background which I then splattered with watered down white watercolor paint.


I chose a light brown cardstock from the EARTH NEUTRALS COLLECTION SP1009 to die cut the STONE KEEP CASTLE COLLAGE 94512 which I then inked with VersaFine Clair Pinecone ink using a fingertip dauber.


I cut the castle away from the background and added it to the waves background.


I chose a bright green cardstock from the LUSH GREEN COLLECTION  SP1003 to cut out the SCHOOL OF FISH 94570.


I inked up the fish a bit with VersaFine Clair Shady Lane ink and a fingertip dauber.


I added some of the fish to the panel which I had trimmed to 4 X 5 1/4 and then secured that panel to the front of a top-fold white notecard.


Here are the cardstock paper pads I used...


...and the two dies.


And here's one more card with fewer fish.


Happy Crafting!
