I used Fitztown's Fish image.  I began by using my Distress Inks, Aged Mahogany and Tattered Rose on a Tag.  Then I misted my tag with water to create tiny droplets that react with the distress inks, used the heat gun to quickly dry it up.

A piece of netting was cut and taped to the back to hold it in place.  I then cut a piece of chipboard and glued it to the back of the tag for firmness.

The following Copic Pens were used on this fish image:
R00, R02, R05, R08, R20, R24, R29, R32, R39, C2, C4 and 100. 
Spica Pen, red 03 was used on the fins on the fish.  A bit hard to see in these photos.  A small piece of chipboard was also cut for the backing of the fish.  I then covered the fish in Glossy Accent and set him aside to dry.

The beautiful underwater sea plants were created with the following Liquid Pearls Dimensional Pearlescent Paints:
Rouge, Peacock, Key Lime and Buttercup.   Distress Stickles, Barn Door was used on the bottom of the tag.  I allowed it all to dry for a few minutes.  The Distress Stickles takes longer to dry especially since I put it on thick (distress stickles is the only kind of stickles that the you can apply the heating tool on) then I glued some Rain Dots by Cloud9 that have a red tint which made it perfecto!  Rain Dots were placed throughout the tag.
