Fish You Were Here with Polka Dot Orchard

Hi Crafty Friends,
It's SUMMER! Beachy, fishy, summery cards right? I love this image and sentiments from Polka Dot Orchard! It's hard to make cards for guys but I think this is a perfect card for a boyfriend or spouse or guy friend that you have been missing... FISH YOU WERE HERE.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Have you ever had a goldfish pet?
A: Me? I won one at a Fun Fair at my elementary school but like most goldfish that you take home in a sandwich bag it died in two days ;(

I started my card by stenciling the waves in the background with Distress Oxides Inks and splattering with water. I colored up the cute little fish and sandcastle scene with copics. I added the seaweed using a grass die cut and finished my card with the "Fish You Were Here" on a little banner die.
