Slide Back Saturday - By The Tide

Today i have a fishy themed slide back Saturday and that is because this morning we had some beautiful discus fish arrive for our aquarium fish tank.
My partner and both sons keep tropical fish, each with their own tank....infact my eldest son has 2 tanks in his bedroom. My dad says we could start our own seaworld up and invite people in haha!

Anyway they were the reason i decided to choose this project from some time ago to show you.
It uses the retired  'By The Tide' stamp set.
Simple to make, stamping off the seaweed to create lighter and darker shades then choosing more vibrant colours for the fish. I chose 'Dapper Denim' and 'Calypso Coral' for these 2 cards. The fish are fussy cut but really don't take long at all. 
Great for children but also mens cards too. 

Here are a couple of photos of some of our new fish, such pretty colours.
