Something fishy going on !

Hello fellow Crafters,

This is my first post of today and it is a card. I love playing in challenges when I have the time. Today I had time so I made a card for the 'Silhouette' challenge over at the Stempelwinkel:
I don't have many stamps from the Stempelwinkel and I might buy some more as they have a lovely collection. For this card I had to improvise :

I started with model paste through a stencil and when that had dried I coloured my cardpanel with Distress Inks and then dripped some water over the top. I then used the bubble stamp in the same Distress Ink colours to make the background more interesting. I also rubbed a black ink pad around the edges. Next I stamped the fish and I must say I thought it was a real shame to have to colour them black to turn them into silhouettes but that was the challenge.... The sentiment was typed on my old fashioned typewriter. I doodled a bit and used a white pencil to highlight the bubbles here and there. I then matted the panel on black card stock and then on a white card. 

That was it ! 

Thank you so much for stopping by !
