4x4 Friday - Fish

My recent love for creating on small surfaces has led me to finally participate in one of the challenges on 4x4 Friday.
I have been visiting this blog for a while now and I love the different interpretations of the topics that are posted each friday.
This weeks challenge was to create a 4x4 card, with fish!

I have some cool fish stamps but when I saw this picture that I made 3 years ago in the Curacao Sea Aquarium I knew I had to use it!
First I cut out the fish, then I sprayed some water on it... what's a fish without water, right?
Then I sanded it with coarse sandpaper, brushed some blue Ecoline on to it, sanded it some more, rubbed it with a babywipe and added some details with Posca Pens. Oh..and sanded it some more :-)

If you are interested in working with Ecoline, check out Stamping Mathilda's blog for tutorials on this product.
The paper on the background is from Love Elsie.
