I started my card by pressing a couple aqua inks onto my craft mat and spritzing it with water. Next i pressed a watercolor panel into the ink, then set it aside to dry. On a piece of white card stock i stamped and masked several of the fish and seaweed. I used memento black ink for the outline images and an orange pigment ink for the solid coral like stamp. The stamps i used to make my scene came from all of the new sets.

After i was done stamping i colored up the image with copic markers. Then i trimmed three sides and cut out around the fish and seaweed from the top of the scene. Next i stamped and cut out the little fish hook from the Gill Friend set.

I wrapped some twine around the hook, added the hook to the watercolor panel with foam tape. Then adhered the twine up to the top of the panel and folded it over.  Next i added the watercolor panel to a white card base and then adhered the scene panel with foam tape.

Then i stamped the 'hooked on you' sentiment from Gill Friend above the hook and stamped the explanation point above one of the fishes (i just love his wide eyes!!)
