Although this card took me way longer than I wanted it too, I love the outcome.
I started by sponging through the stencil in blue ink on the blue card base, moved the stencil marginally, then sponged it with iridescent medium. I think my impression of water moving worked - the stencil I used is called Waving Branches, and should be used vertically, not horizontally!
I then cut a window using the Peek a boo window die from MFT, from white cardstock, sized to cover the card front with a small border. I stamped and silver embossed the fish on a snippet, and then painted it with Iridescent Blue Twinklng H2O paint, which you can just see on the tail flukes. I created an acetate window, and glued the fish across the bottom of the aperture.
The sentiment was also stamped in blue using a vertical stamp. All the edges were sponged with the same ink. I adhered two layers of foam on the back, filled the shaker element with blue and white sequins, and adhered the blue base card over it.
The inside was finished with some blue and silver sparkle tape, and some silver spotted washi.
