Since I was making a fish card, my 6yr old daughter wanted to make her own fish card. Erin stamped all images, colored & cut out. She wanted some raised so she used 3D dots & made her own sand by making tan dots with a marker. She hand wrote the sentiment which says "Back to the Sea".
Fishy Friends, Fish Frolics & Fiskras Fish stamps were used.
My other daughter Kaitlyn who is 8yrs old also wanted to make a fish card while I was making one. She stamped all images & colored. She made her own bubbles with a blue marker by adding dots.
Reflections Fish Clear stamps, Fish Frolics, Fiskras Fish stamps were used.

Congratulations Taylor aka stagccva for being Featured Stamper. I chose your Three Little Fish CARD.
I could never have to many fish cards because of the occupation I'm in. I'm always looking at creating different fish cards when I need them so this was perfect.
I used SU basic black cs as the base. I layered with DCWV Shimmery blue stationary cs. I used GP white cs as the panel. I used a medium circle punch on SU basic black cs & I used a small circle punch on GP white cs. I ran the small circles through the CB bubbles EF. I stamped the fish on watercolor paper, used primascolor pencils with mineral spirits & blending stumps. I then cut out the fish, used the 2way glue & added Diamond Dust. The fish are raised with 3D squares. I added black metal stickers on the corners. I stamped the sentiment with black stazon. I tried different ribbons, but instead cut a piece of SU basic black cs, used scissors to make the "V" at the end of the strip.
Things I changed: used circles not squares, colors, changed fish

I stamped the image with versa mark ink on GP white cs. I used black embossing powder, then the heat gun to set. I colored with SU markers. I then layered with SU basic black cs. I stamped the sentiment with black stazon. I used the MS butterfly punch on SU basic black & added 3 white pearls to each butterfly. The base of the card is GP white cs.
