I have a friend at work whose son’s is celebrating a birthday this weekend. I thought I would used this weeks Just Add Ink Sketch Challenge as inspiration for his card. Hopefully my card design hasn’t varied too much from the sketch.
The sketch inspired me to make a Fish Bowl card. It also gave me a chance to make a punch fish. When the ornament punch first came out I remember seeing them, but didn’t get a chance to make one. When I started to make the card, I came across a problem, in the fact that a fish bowl is not completely round, so that is where I varied the sketch slightly. I cut out the Fish Bowl using Whisper White cardstock that was folded over. I then added strip of Basic Black to the top and bottom of the card and used a Basic Black marker to define the sides of the bowl. For the bubbles I used one of the stamps from the French Foliage stamp set and I used the little leaves die to make plants in the bowl. I then made the fish using various punches and adhered the fish to the card using foam pads.
