Best Fishes
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, y'all!  It's Jinny here, on this beautiful, summer morning, to share a playful, under-the-sea, watercolor card.  It was inspired by the new I'm a Narwhal stamp set and coordinating dies from our May 2017 Release.  Enjoy!

  Poppystamps Best Fishes - JinnyNewlin

I started this card by adding blue and green watercolor puddles to a watercolor paper, card base and splattering it with those same shades of watercolor, as well as Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.  Once it was dry, I stamped, from top to bottom, a gradient of Bashful Blue, Brilliant Blue, and Not Quite Navy waves across the background.

I then watercolored a blue gradient onto a watercolor paper, Festival Tag die cut; stamped it, in Jet Black ink, with bubbles which would later be filled in with Glossy Accents for texture and shine; and popped it up, with foam tape, in the center of the card face.  A few, Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paint splatters set the stage for those darling narwhals, which were die-cut from watercolor paper; watercolored; and popped up, in their respective positions, with foam tape.

The "best fishes" sentiment was stamped, in Jet Black ink, on a hand-cut, vellum banner and tucked behind the lower narwhal.

Finally, I added a little, die-cut, Brilliant Blue cardstock ring to the top center of the tag and laced it with white string, tied in a bow, to complete the look.

Thanks so much for humbling us with a visit!  Have a wonderful rest of your week, Poppystamps friends!
