I started out by stamping the goldfish and then embossing it with clear EP. Then I fussy cut them out since I didn't have the dies. For the background, I played with my distress oxide inks and just kept layering color and then spraying it with water until I got a look I liked. These inks really are like magic! I positioned the fish where I thought I wanted them and figured out where I wanted the sentiment. (Does anyone else hear Dory from Finding Nemo in your head when you see this sentiment?) I then stamped it in versamark and embossed it with white embossing powder. Before I placed the goldfish I stamped the seaweed in a pale green. I added the googly eyes to the fish and used foam tape to give the fish some dimension.
