When I first opened up the box from Hero Arts and I saw this Bubbles Bold Print Background (its an add-on this month)....I knew I had to use it!!  Isn't adorable?

To create this card, I heat embossed the bubble background on white Neenah cardstock with Hero Arts White Embossing Powder.  Next, I grabbed the Life Changing Blending Brushes and added in some Peacock Feathers Broken China Distress Inks to the background.  Talk about a smooth blend!  Next, I die the Hello Message Fancy Die in white Neenah and again in fun foam.  I used the fun foam to add some dimension to the sentient.  I colored up the little adorable little fish from the add-on set  Pet Gold Fish and tucked it behind the hello.  This way she looks like a shy little fish peeking out.  I used the Blue and Green Droplets in the background for little pops of color.  I popped the card front up on a white card base and left just a little white showing along the bottom.

My last project was so fun to make.  I used the Paper Layering Gold Fish in a Bowel...

This is a die set with the bowl and the fish included.  I created a shaped card using the bowl and then masked off the top of the bowl.  I grabbed those Life Changing Brushes again and blending in the Peacock Feathers and the Broken China to create the water.  I used Carbed Pumpkin and Fossilized Amber Distress Inks to blend color onto the goldfish die cut.  I used a piercing tool to pop up the scales on the fish to give it some dimension.  I stamped the coral and sea weed from the main kit stamp set directly on the fish bowl.  I added in the sentiment and bubbles in black.  Last, I popped up the fish on the bowl with foam tape.
