Hero Arts Rainbow Fishies!

Happy Monday crafty friends! Today I am sharing these adorable Hero Arts Fish! They have the cutest faces that absolutely needed to be colored in rainbow colors :)

I started by cutting a piece of Strathmore Bristol paper to create my water background. I put some Distress Inks on my Tim Holtz glass mat and sprayed water on the four colors used (listed below) and put my paper to it. I dried in between to get the desired effect to be able to add more color, which I did about four times. For the last application, I put fresh ink down and sprayed my water once to give more defined color.  I put my piece aside to properly dry and started to work on my fish!

I stamped my fish on a piece of Neena Solar white and used my Copic Markers to color them (all colors listed below) I then used the accompanying dies for my images.  I took my background panel and die cut it with the Hero Arts Rounded Rectangles and then embossed my sentiment.

I placed my fish and then used foam tape to secure them to the panel. I also used foam tape for the background panel to flatten the slight warp from the watercolor and embossing.  To finish off I added some Studio Katia Iridescent Bubbles and some white gel pen detail.
