I made this aquarium for the challenge ways to use, Carla asked us to make it shiny, I don't know if you can see that the front is acetate, I found the template of a bowl on the internet and made a double card with extra fold between the both to make it standing, to keep the both parts together at the top I used twine, I embossed the back side at 2/3 I sponged with mer du sud and verveine and a bit of toffee, I stamped the swirls and fussy cut the fish and colored them with alcohol markers at last iI stamped the swirls on the front side and printed the sentiment which says: to feel like a fish in the water, In French this saying is used to say you feel good, and know what you want

So cool! Sort of like those snow-globe cards that use acetate. It's a great inspired card. And I was so interested to read your explanation of the sentiment - in English we have the saying "like a fish out of water", which is obviously very uncomfortable and out of one's element, whereas your version is more like bien dans son peau... I really like the way the swirls round the frame echo the seaweed swirls inside.
