Birthday Fish

This rainbow fish is full of birthday wishes for our grandson, who has been going fishing with his dad on the weekends.  He will be 4 years old next week, and loves to fish!!
The fish is really a fun watercolor technique, and I did it last summer with the GDs and we loved doing it.  I found it on You Tube, it's a painting for kids.......that would be me....LOL!  In short, it is very wet watercolor and blowing through a drinking straw.  The black is a sharpie.  I did use a good watercolor paper and then a glossy finish over the top.

Here is the inside, background paper was made the same way as the fish, all the letters were cut with the CriCut.   
When I'm finished here I will get it signed and popped into the mail.
