I have used the latest sketch over on Di Hickman's blog for the layout. It is perfect as I wanted something quite simple.
The starting point was the chipboard shape, the fish was red so I coloured it black with a permanent Sharpie pen and highlighted it with a bit of Sakura clear glitter pen and a Papermania gem for it's eye.
The shimmering panel at the back is a piece of illusion film which is a sheet of textured plastic which moves when you tilt the card, it's like those ruler's with moving scenes on that we all had as kids. I liked that it looks like waves and always saw me using it for this type of fishy card. However, it has been in my stash for years and unused up till now. Sound familiar anyone ?
The sentiment strip and panel are from a Making Cards Male Special issue and the card has been finshed off with some blue gems from Poundland.
