Best Friends Day - June 8

A Random Fan provided "Fintastic Noah"
I have quite a collection of beautifully imagined fish - and I was certain I could find a 'Best Friend' for Noah.  This is my DT entry for the latest challenge at 613 Ave C - Best Friend's Day - June 8.  
Random Fan is sponsoring this challenge and will provide the prize!  

Definitely check out the interpretations of the other DT HERE along with the specifics of the challenge.  This is an easy one - so challenge yourself and join in!  [Hint: if you use Polka Dots in your design - you will also fit the challenge at A Random Fan! - Be sure to read all their rules!]

[Note: specific information on supplies and sources will be found below under “Supplies”.]
  • I used a "Paper Sculpting Technique" that consists of: printing the focal image three times, coloring with Copics, fussy cutting different layers, sculpting the individual pieces [dry embossing each individual piece from the back using a large ball tool] and layering with foam tape to maintain the dimension. 
  • The heavy weight, very shiny CS  used for the Base card was embossed with 'bubbles' using a Cuttlebug E-folder.
  • Focal panel was matted with black and taped on the front of the base card which is 3.75 x 7.5" wide.  [I'm gonna have fun making an envelope for this one!]
  • The inside is very plain but does have a seahorse to continue the theme.
