Fish Bowl

On the Stamper's Delights Facebook Group there is a monthly progressive freebie challenge. This month it is a great Fish Bowl set where you can create your own scene. There are so many possibilities with permutations that you can create with this set.

I used the fish bowl, coral, grass and the happy fish from this set. I also added a cute little Seahorse from Bugaboo Stamps. The image has been coloured with Promarker pens and I added some silver gel pen bubbles

The sentiment is a very old freebie from Marlene Shaw who used to design under the name 'Disguised as a Grownup'. It seemed perfect for the lockdown situation we have found ourselves in with the Covid-19 virus.

I used sketch 182 from Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 for the layout. The base layer of paper I wanted to use circles to emulate the bubbles in the fishbowl. I then used some holographic paper for the lower section which has waves in it. Finally I added homemade enamel dots which have been made by melting pony beads. I found the tutorial here on Creative Bug on the Loose from many years ago.
