By The Tide - Triple Time Stamping

This was a really fun card to make!  I wanted some color for the background so I started off by using Ranger Distress Inks and sponges to build up color.   I splashed on a little water to give it a spotted underwater look.  When the water dried, it looked pretty cool.  Then I stamped the plant with more Distress Inks and the fish with black.  I didn't like how the fish kind of blended into the background, so I used Stamping Up markers and a paint brush to add a little more color.  I liked that, too!  Some YoYo Yellow made the fish eyes come alive! Thanks for visiting!!
