Best Fishes

About a month ago I made a fun fish card using a background piece I made.  I didn't use all of it and the remaining piece sat on my desk staring at me.  I finally made a card with this small piece. And it's a shaker!

This can also be called a tunnel card as the top layer has a larger opening then the middle layer, at least that's the way I understand it.   I used 1 stamp set on the cover, Fun Stampers Journey's Age of Aquarium. This was their July 2019 stamp set of the month. I used Spellbinders Sea Life Accents die for the cool sea weed.

I stamped the fish and turtle using some Create-A-Palette ink pads that I colored using assorted Liquid Colors and assorted re-inkers. The fun sequins shown in the above photo and in the shaker came from the Splash Zone Sequins. These are SOOO cool!

I used FSJ's Circle Around die set for the openings and embossed with their Wind & Water embossing folder.  There's actually a matching stamp called Windy Sky that coordinates with this embossing folder.  The piece under the shaker I used a fish stencil from Picket Fence Studios called Ocean of Fish that I got from Simon Says Stamp (I am not an affiliate for them) and a stencil from FSJ called Splash Zone Stencil.  A few other products are linked below.

I'm thinking my sentiment should have been on the light Pool Play paper instead of white. What do you think?
