Catching up

Hello Readers!!

For today I am going to be playing along with ColourQ. Blue is my favorite color and thought this challenge would be perfect. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

Flip cards are so much fun!
The red fish compliments the blues of the ocean scene.
Inside the card you will find a surprise fish that
was hidden behind the circle.
 I decided to darken the edges of the card by applying gray ink with an aqua brush.
This brings a bit of depth and contrast.
The marine plants background was an embossed resist technique.
I used Memento Ink in various colors, an acrylic block, and an aqua brush.
Challenges Entered:
ColourQ: cQc #349



I made this card for my aunt who is now back in Michigan for the summer. She arrived home at the end of May and here we are in the middle of July, and I still haven't seen her! So I thought this card would be perfect to let her know I am thinking about her and we should really 'catch up'.

Thank you so much for joining me once again at TheGrandStampede. I do appreciate every visit comment or not. So, until next time take care and happy stamping.

All the best,
Shawna

It's a fabulous card, Shawna! :o)
Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my blog! I'm happy to be following you in return!
You asked about my blog name. My last name is Nickel. A number of years ago I had a website where I sold handmade dolls and teddy bears. When I needed a name "The Nickel Nook" seemed like a good idea! So I've just kept it, and now use it for my blog! :o)
