Scrap Whisper White card stock for Fish—stamp the fish using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink **Important to use Memento Ink when you want to color with Stampin’ Blends or any alcohol based marker. I used Petal Pink light Stampin’ Blends and the Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends to color my fish.

Whisper White Card Stock to cut out a 2 3/4” Circle using the layering circle dies and then sponge pineapple punch ink onto the circle to create a sunrise effect and then sponge balmy blue ink toward the bottom to create the water. You can then stamp the ‘water bubbles’ over the sponged area.

Smoky Slate card stock you’ll use the 2 7/8” layering circle and a size or two below that (depending on how wide you want your frame to be) and align the two up (smaller circle inside the larger circle as I show in the video tutorial) and cut them out with your big shot machine.
