I first stamped the scene then brushed on some Distress Ink water using my Clarity brush. Then I colored in the bits using Copics but decided the water was a bit too light so went back and brushed on more. This softened the colors just like it was underwater! Who knew?! The scene lacked a bit of oomph so I colored the fish again and popped it up. I added bubbles too. Darn simple but oh so cute!
