Instructions: Please note: All stamping is done with the gold embossing powder. This project measures 17 cm x 17 cm when finished. The bowl measures 15.2 cm x 13.7 cm. The top of the bowl is 1.7 cm x 11.6 cm. The base, 3.5 cm x 11.6 cm. Take the fish bowl pattern, the crafters companion card stock and trace and cut the fish bowl. For the fish bowl front, cut out the front circle using the line on the pattern. To form a clear window front, cut from the clear cardstock the same size as the bowl front. Before adhering the window, use the distress inks to bring color to the fish bowl. Now you can adhere the clear sheet to the back of the bowl hole. From the paper pad cut two strips for the foot of the bowl front. Find the paper with the sentiment "There is only one like you", cut this to form the background of the bowl. Ink the edges then adhere in place.

Stamp, color, then die cut all the embellishments. Bring shape to the stamped images with the flower shaping tool kit. Apply stickles to the elements and back ground then put aside to dry. Make your flowers and leaves. To make the valley and hill support for the elements, cut from the paper pad 12 cm x 10 cm. Make the folds at 1.5 cm. Ink the folds. Adhere this to the back foot of the fish bowl. Arrange the elements to the background and in the folds of the base, so each fold has sea grass, swirls, fishes and it is all in balance. Please note: the sea grass is from the jellyfish tentacles, the swirls are cut from the flower swirl. Once you are pleased with the results and all is secure and dry, adhere this base to the fish bowl front. To finish the project, adhere the coral border, flowers and leaves to the front top and foot.
