MFP Blog Hop Day 4~ Fish You Were Here




Today's fintastic set is called Fish You Were Here. I made a fishbowl (it opens at the bottom) and colored it in with Copic markers.
The accompanying sentiments are delightful and the fish couldn't be more beautiful and perfectly detailed. Great for coloring!
The second set uses the fish colored in Copics with the added party hat. I inked up some bubble wrap to make the background and stamped the coral fan image onto the orange panel. Nestabilities octagons to frame.
