  1. Fold and burnish the card using a bone folder.
  2. Stamp the fish onto the Watercolour paper using Archival ink.
  3. Before you open your ink pad. Squeeze the ink pad together so the some of the ink transfers to the lid.
  4. Using the small Water Brush and the Cocoa ink, colour in the top and bottom of the fish, leaving a strip in the middle for the Blossom ink.
  5. Gently add the Sapphire ink to the water areas around the fish making some areas dark and some light. Place aside to dry.
  6. Layer up the two back layers and attach to the front of the card.
  7. Layer Up the two small rectangle pieces and attach the fish piece to the front.
  8. Attach this piece to the middle front of the card using 3D foam tape.
  9. Cut the Happy Birthday from the White Glitter Paper and attach to the top and bottom of the card as shown.
  10. Using the Clear Shimmer Brush, gently go over the fish and the water to add a lovely shimmer affect when the card is moved into the light.

I hope that you enjoy this card and give it a go.
