Color Throwdown #435 - Happy Fishes

Color Throwdown Challenge #435
 
 Come play with us in this week's Color Throwdown Challenge #435.
Don't these colors just make you smile?
I immediately wanted to use this fun set That Bites from Avery Elle and matching dies. I knew the colors would work perfect for these fish and water. How cute are these fishes?! So I had some Distress Oxide Ink fun.  I am learning what these inks can do, but I must say they sponge onto my card like a dream.  So I started by sponging on my Distress Oxide Broken China ink using Ranger Mini Ink Blending tool.  Then I used the TH misting bottle and pulled the trigger half way to get my drops then I dabbed with a paper towel. I colored and cut out my  fish. I arranged them the way I wanted and ran each back through my cuttlebug to cut where they would overlap each other so they sit more smoothly on the card even though they are popped up.  
I used Glossy Accents 
to add drops to the bubbles on my card. Love how it works. I finished off with a tiny bit of washi and sentiment. Fun card to make.

Way too dang cute! I love the sentiment with those goofy fish. I was practically standing on my head to see what their smiles look like upside down. You do such an amazing job with the few Copics you use.
