Build-A-Blossom fish

This adorable card idea came from the Orlando Regional Seminar last week.
It uses the Build a Blossom stamp set and the Blossom petals punch.  I brayered the bottom of the Whisper White card before stamping the fish in Tempting Turquoise.  The big fish was stamped in Melon Mambo ink.  The grass from the Inspired by Nature stamp set was inked in Certainly Celery ink.
This was really a quick and fun card to make!
My brayering tip: Put a magazine under your work mat before brayering to get a smoother look.  Start your brayer off the paper and gradually roll harder as you mover over the card stock.
