Spotlight on Fish

Think Ink Challenge #22 is to try a new technique. I hope you'll play along for a chance to win! Complete details are HERE.

Yes, I know I create spotlighted scenes all the time but here I went for the more traditional spotlight technique where the rest of the piece is UNCOLORED (gasp!). It was very tough for me to leave all those images uncolored but I think it turned out kinda cool. It also gives me an alternative for those time when I'm in a rush! I'm guessing you don't really need much instruction here, eh?

Stamps: Artful INKables Aquatic Fantasy
Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black, Papertrey White
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Copics, Nesties, Stamp-a-majig, fine black marker (to draw the sea floor and a few sand hills), Fiskars Boundary Waters punch

WOW, this may be my most favourite card you've ever made!! I love the black and white background and the coloured fish in bubbles. That wave punch down the side is also fantastic.
