Purple Passion Fish- Doodle Pantry Challenge #17 & Sponsorship



Wow, I had a hard time with this fish, not the fishes fault, just me. I made him dimensional and then decided to put crystal effects on his eyes. They turned out just terrible, cloudy and full of air pockets, so I tried to remove the gloss from his eye and of course removed the whole eye plus some of his face. I mean, I knew better but some times stupidity takes over:) I finally gave in and printed out a new image, coloured it, removed the dimensional one and replaced it with the above fishy.   Note: nothing on his eyes!!. I have quite a time with crystal effects or glossy accents. Make some ghastly messes..

Doodle Pantry October Specials click HERE.


ALSO:


Doodle Pantry is a sponsor this  October (the whole month) for the  Corrosive Challenge Blog  and this week the theme is  Purple Passion - Use purple plus one other color.  I chose  this fish cutie  from a DP digital stamp set  called 'Little Betta Fish' and  the sentiment  from their 'Rounded Circles'  set. The image is coloured with  Prismacolor markers and  I used  MS's scary branches punch for the flower leaves hoping it would look like seaweed.  The red background was  crimped to  reflect the movement of water and  I added the pearls for bubbles.   Oh, I added stickles to his body to accent the scales.


Challenges entered.

  7. Glenda,
    Your fish is wonderful! I know what you mean about Crystal Effects though...I can never use it right either. Maybe try using a heat gun to dry it faster and the air bubbles (cloudiness) might dissipate. But try it on something that is a practice piece first! lol! Love your creation!
