I tried to create an "under the lake" effect with my water color. I used a wide flat brush dipped directly into Distress reinker on a palette to make the underwater grasses. Then I washed plain water over to make the sandy looking bottom. I love how Distress Inks break down into more than one color...very cool. My fishy embellishment is from Paper Whimsy Sheet #116. I added some Wink of Stella to give a little sparkle. I also used a large embossing tool and a foam mat to give the fish a curve which looked more realistic when I used foam tape to pop it up.
