Ornamental Fish

I have seen many other demonstrators use the Ornament Punch to make fish but this is the first time I have attempted this myself.  I CASEd Sandy Hancock's fish from this card.  While Sandy's card was just adorable, I wanted my fish to be swimming in water made out of the new In Color Pool Party.  I added some bubbles to their pool with the Circle Circus stamp set and used my Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to add more texture.  I mounted the fish pool on Island Indigo and used my Crop-o-dile to add the embossed dots across the bottom.  A little 1/8" Early Espresso Taffeta Ribbon covers the border where the dynamic duo colors meet.  I think these little fellows turned out cute!
