Blow Fish Card (Kitty Bee Designs Spotlight)

Hi everyone! :o)

Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Kitty Bee Designs and I made this one layer, watercolored Blow Fish Card. :o)

To make this card I was inspired with a card I created in April 2017, Cow over the Moon Card.

For my today's card I used a super cute Kitty Bee Designs 'Blow Fish' digital image. This image is from 2013 Sea Buddies V.2 collection. :o)

For a card base I used Canson XL Mixed Media Paper.

I printed the fish on the card base and left it aside for 12 hours to dry, to prevent ink smearing while coloring.

I colored everything in a watercolor technique using Distress Inks (DI). First I colored a blue background, covered the fish with paper towel pieces and splattered the background with DI Blueprint Sketch and with water. When I was satisfied with background I watercolored the fish and left my card dry for two hours. As a finishing touch, I added white highlights and dots with a white gel pen. :o)

Dimensions: 95 mm x 127 mm (3 3/4" x 5")
