Tankful of Thanks

Okay, so my 14 week old kitten(Catapult) found my fish tank this week.  I know, I know I shouldn't let her on the bar counter, but it was so darn fun watching her jump around, pawing, and watching them.  It just inspired me to create a fish tank card.  I remembered that Lawnscaping was having a Stamp a Scene Challenge--#14.  Using bubble wrap from some stamps I received in the mail this week (hee, hee), I dabbed Memories Baby Blue ink and created a bubbly background.  Then I stamped and heat embossed (Ranger--black sparkle) my fish  (Inkadinkado) on different colored card stock scraps.  I wanted my fish to represent the colors of the rainbow for The Color Throwdown Challenge #151--rainbow.  I used beads to create the sand on the bottom of the tank and Stampendous' Sushi Bowl Party for the coral and shell.  I used pop dots to make the red and purple fish as well as the sentiment pop out.  I used Martha Stewart's Bubble Bath (I just love that name.) to punch a border for the top of my water.  I ended up with a cute tankful of fish to give to someone.  Thanks for checking out my cards.
