Steamunk Funky Fish from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning folks, have you seen this months fabby new releases from Chocolate Baroque? There's Steampunk Seaworld and Steampunk Funky Fish (you can find them here and even better they are on special offer!!). I've tried to create a rusty effect on this card, after all swimming around in salty water would make our little steampunk fishes go rusty lol.

I've used two of the stamps from Steampunk Funky Fish for this card. I began with a distress ink background (using Broken China, Tumbled Glass and Weathered Wood distress inks). I stencilled over the top with Mowed Lawn distress ink though a Crafters Workshop Cell Stencil. Next I used the same stencil and blotted with damp kitchen roll to remove some of the colour. I stamped some foliage (from Seadragon) with Mowed Lawn distress ink. I distressed the edges and matted the background on some copper mirri card.

I took some self adhesive foil tape (from the plumbing department of my local DIY store) that I'd attached to a scrap of white card and added some colour with alcohol inks. I stamped the fish and the seadragon with Versmark and embossed with WOW Copper embossing powder before cutting them out and popping them on my background with 3d foam pads.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
