Birthday Fishes

Hello and good Sunday to you, crafty friends!
I have a card to share that I made, which I'm
pleased to have been able to link up to a few challenges with:

 The main panel is mixed media paper that I used the paper towel transfer technique on.

 I'm pretty sure this towel has Dylusions spray inks and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists
sprayed on it. Here's a close up picture that shows how the design in the paper towel
transferred to the panel:

I tried to get a close up of how the 'water' shimmers from the glimmer mist:
Pretty cool!

I die cut and colored my fish, then once the panel was completely dry, stamped
the sentiment wonky. The fish were adhered with foam squares.

This was a fun technique, and I'll be making more panels using it. 
(I just have to remember to wear latex gloves otherwise my fingertips
will pick up the inks from the towel. Ask me how I know.)

Thanks for visiting. I hope you have a great rest of the day!
