Fish Bowl Card

Hi everyone, today's card features "Under the Sea Birthday Set" by Bugaboo Stamps.

I cut out a cute fish bowl image from Design Space, using the slice and weld features I modified the fish bowl, so I could have an outer rim.

I used my Tim Holtz Distress Inks and markers to create a watercolor background of water and sand.
The fish was attached with foam tape to add dimension.

I created the little bubbles with my Nuvo Crystal drops.  Instead of applying directly to the card, I made the dots on some left over vinyl backing.  Once they are dry, they pop right off and then I glued them in place.  I don't always get the drops the right size, so this way I can do a few and then select the ones I want.  The rest I put in a little container for future projects.
