Depth of Field - Catch of the Day

Another fun technique! I had a lot of fun doing this! And hopefully my card class will enjoy learning how to do it tonight!
Stamp sets: Catch of the Day,Thank You.
Cardstock: Colonial White, Bamboo, Cocoa.
Inks: Grey Flannel, Bamboo, Cocoa, Black, Blush, Olive.
Antique copper brads, waterbrush, liquid glass,foam tape and google eye.

Stamp your image with grey flannel first leaving spaces, then stamp with Bamboo ink, then cocoa and finally stamp the fish hook in black. The fish is stamped in Cocoa, using the waterbrush, pick up ink from the stamp pad lid, put a line of blush down the middle of the fish and color mouth. Color the top of the fish, fins and tail with Olive ink using the waterbrush. Cut fish out and apply liquid glass, place on google eye and let dry. I attached the fish using foam tape on head and middle, glued the tail down.

I love the leaves and love using the double cuttlebug technique. I thought that this looked like sunlight swirling from behind the leaves.
