A tad fishy?

This week's challenge at High Hopes is
Double Trouble
(use 2 High Hopes stamps or make 2 cards the same)  Play along with your High Hopes stamps to win a new one of your choice.

My card uses Bob and Bubbles and for such a CAS card it took aaaages to make!  It would have been a bit easier if I'd had some distress inks, but I don't so I used pencils to shade in the water. Then I masked off all my fishies and added some paint splatters.  There's probably a much easier way of doing it!  (actually now I think of it, I could have used my blue chalk for the water.  Doh!)  Bubbles are filled with clear gloss and glitter, and the red fish and sentiment panel are popped up on dimensionals.  Black enamel dots added for their eyes.

Other challenges:
