Koi and Bubbles.....

Hello everyone: I have a card to share with you today for the CAS(E) this Sketch! challenge.  Here is my card.

When I saw the sketch by Michele Ferguson I knew the chance to use this bubble stamp finally arrived. The Stamp set is from Designs by Ryn and it's called  Rising Bubbles , I just love the realistic look of this beautiful bubbles, this picture is taken from the side.

I wanted to create an underwater little scene so I stamped the bubbles onto a piece of vellum just to see where I was going to stamp the pretty Koi fish, from a retired Flourishes set called Water Lilies.
Then I stamped the fish on a piece of scrap paper and snipped them out, applied a bit of two way glue to  make them sticky to use as a mask for when I stamped the bubbles.  I used my MISTI to place the fish on top of the vellum piece stamped with the bubbles, ink them up and stamped them onto the water color paper panel. I placed the snipped fish on top of them and, using the vellum with the bubbles, I placed the stamp on the MISTI and stamped both images, removed the mask and colored the fish with Prismacolor pencils. I did look for pictures just to get the colors as close to the real ones as possible.

Here is a picture of the inside of my card.

The sentiment is stamped with SU Tangelo Twist and the Lotus Flowers with Strawberry Slush, both are from this set.

Here is the sketch that inspired this card.
Thank you so much for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Great take on the sketch! Those bubbles are fantastic and you've reminded me I've got the water droplet stamps and never remember to use them!
