Attempting to use some of DH's underwater photos. This Angel Fish is one of my favorites taken off Grand Cayman. Trying to get the feel of a coral reef. Used handmade papers and matted on bleeding tissued watercolor paper. Haven't adhered permanently as it is still a work in progress so any suggestions are welcomed.

WOW! Super card! You asked for feedback, so I'll add my two cents. In the thumbnail the card looked just perfect, but when I enlarged it I felt the orange strip of paper really overpowered the angel fish photo. Maybe if you matted the angel fish photo with a fine black mat under the aqua one that is already there, or maybe with the orange and black? JMHO. :)

A really beautiful photo and wonderful layout with your BG papers. I would agree that that a very slim ( 1/16") layer behind the fish would be nice and then maybe a sentiment or ribbon to the right of your fish. But just as is is very nice too. TFS
