[WIW] Make a Fish Valentine by Channin

Hello everyone! It’s Channin here for Watch It Wednesday! In today’s video I will demonstrate how to create this sweet fish valentine using the new Make a Fish Die and stamp set. Plus I share some helpful storage/organization tips for layering die sets.

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

First, I divided all the Make a Fish Die pieces into 6 groups (there are 6 different colors/layers), using the Make a Fish guide sheet as a reference. I then colored 6 sections of white cardstock with my alcohol markers, making sure all the dies in that particular grouping could fit within its colored section. Next I arranged the dies into their sections and die cut all the dies from the Make a Fish Die. I then adhered all the die cuts together using liquid adhesive. Once the fish was all adhered, using my alcohol markers, I added some shading to some of the details.

I then created a wave background using a mask I made using the Scenery Die and some contact paper. I simply ink blended a little New Fish in Pond Dye Ink over the mask on the front of an A2 card base and simply repeated the process for each wave. Lastly, I partially inked and stamped a sentiment from the Make A Fish Stamp Set and the Pawsome Stamp Set in Distress Oxide Picked Raspberry and Candied Apple to create a gradation and added some Ranger Enamel Accents to the eye.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project! Thanks so much for stopping by!
