Fun in the Sun - Fishies

This is a second entry for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #117 combined with the ColorMyHeart Color Dare #151.  I wanted to do something different than using hexagons so I came up with some Fishies swimming and blowing bubbles while the sun rises.  All images were either stamps and/or fussy-cut design paper, stamps colored and placed in position with 3D Thin Foam Tape.  Liquid Glass was added to the bubbles and star fish and small black pearls used for the eyes of the fishies.  Clear Wink of Stella was added to the sun.  

ColorDare Dares you to use "Seaside" CTMH Paper, colors in this Challenge 

Also submitted to:

DLArt July Linky Challenge - "Anything Goes" - Random Draw

Only Cricut Cut was a Circle for the Sun, all others images were fussy-cut stamps

Better than meeting up with a Shark at the Beach

I love this! The fish are so cute and colourful (and much better than running into a shark, for sure!) What a great take on the Life's a Beach theme at H2H!
