Feeling Fishy?

Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #67 - SKETCH
This week's challenge is sponsored by Stamp and Create 
PRIZE: $20 Gift Certificate


Here is my DT card for this week's challenge...
 I love summer, and lately the weather in Virginia has been awesome!  That's what inspire me to create yet another fishy card.  Not to mention that I wanted to try something new (to me at least) - There are two "window" features on this card!

Here's a larger view of my fishy friends.  Doesn't it look like they are really swimming about under the sea?!  See all the bubbles?  I really wish I could have taken a better picture of this, because this picture does not do the justice this piece deserves.  I built the background for this part by cutting a piece of paper in a wave pattern, then I used it as a stencil to sponge on alternating shades of blue.  The seaweed stamp is from  Stampin' Up! Tropical Party. The fish is by Recollections Feeling Fishy.  I could not resist adding their googly eyes!

Here is a close-up of the Shaker Box.  The background was created with torn pieces of cardstock, which was flicked with a bit of ink.  I enclosed a couple seashells, a bit of sand, and dew drops.
I hope you'll join us at the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge. I'm looking forward to viewing your lovely creations!
