Fishy Puns Are the Best!

Toni with you this fine day playing with new Memory Box products. Oh, how I love them!

While thinking about the design of the card, I realized the three collage dies could be layered for a really cool look--like peering into a sea cavern or a coral tunnel.

First, I sponged the card base using Distress Oxide Broken China and Cracked Pistachio. I used a Zig H2O Detail Watercolor Brush to flick water onto it, waited a few seconds, then used a paper towel to dab away the excess water. Next came the diecuts. The bottom layer in iridescent mylar is Seaweed Collage, the next from a pale blue cardstock lightly sponged with Distress Oxide Cracked Pistachio is Coral Collage and the top is Underwater Collage in a crisp white.

I used Copics to color up the Memory Box Fish Tales stamps and then tucked those into the scene at the different layers using Ranger Multi Medium Matte. The sentiment is stamped in my favorite VersaFine Onyx Black. Isn't that pun adorably funny? So cute!!!!

I have a bunch of other ideas for the dies that aren't underwater. Any guesses on what I might do? Stay tuned!
