Tutti Designs Tropical Fish

Laurie here from Stamping Up North with a fun nautical card from Tutti Designs April release. What a great set of dies! I'm not sure which one I like best!

I decided to start out with the Tropical Fish, and cut him out using an alcohol ink background. (here's a link to a great tutorial)

TUTTI-450 Tropical Fish

Then I cut out some coral and the word Happy.

TUTTI-451 Coral
TUTTI-283 Happy Birthday Circle

I adhered them all onto a piece of alcohol ink background that I made with green on the bottom, and blues on the top. At the time I made it I was thinking of an outdoor scene, but it works perfectly for an underwater scene!

Then I took another piece of alcohol ink background and cut out this GORGEOUS shell frame. I used the frame it LEFT OVER to frame this card, and I saved the actual shell frame for another card that I will be posting soon.

TUTTI-445 Seashell Frame

I also cut out 2 shells from the frame....

....adhered them, and added some pearls and a Nuvo drop for an eye.

Here's a list of the dies I used:

and here are some Tutti Designs quick links:
