Birthday Fishes

It's one layer week again at Less is More, and this week the theme is Water. I decided to make an underwater scene using a tropical fish stamp. I stamped and embossed it three times, then masked off the images and lightly scribbled watercolour pencils on the background then blended them with a waterbrush. When it was dry, I stamped the pebbles at the bottom, coloured in the fish and added seaweed and air bubbles freehand.

To my surprise, I didn't have a stamp of the greeting "Birthday Fishes" - I wonder why not? So I decided to make a feature of the fact by stamping Birthday Wishes then correcting it in red ink, schoolteacher style!


  1. Great scene, love the way you've created your pebbles along the bottom.
    Thanks for sharing with us.
