I thought the fish looked worried about the cat...I knew the cat was there watching somewhere, so I decided to stamp on acetate and do the floating image technique so the cat is visible behind the fish bowl. With floating image, you put part of the image cut out on the stamped acetate so it appears to "float". I also used a sharpie to make the fish bowl blue and used an opaque white marker to give the outline a little more definition.

After 11 years as a demo, guess I'm not so"new" anymore!

Beautiful card! If I'm understanding your directions correctly the fish bowl was stamped on acetate and cut out and then placed over the stamped cat image? I'm really new at this and am just amazed at your cards!

NOpe...the fish in the bowl was stamped on acetate first, then the fish was stamped again on white cardstock, cut out, then applied to the back of the acetate. The acetate is adhered behind the punched window on the cardfront, then the cat is stamped on the interior of the card and shows through the window.
For better directions, this is a technique I got out of Technique Junkies Newsletter. If you are interested in subscribing, go to http://www.patstamps.com
