Impression Obsession DT Challenge: Hot Fun in the Summertime

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a summer-themed project. I had this goldfish colored up from a tutorial I was working on (I used Prismacolor pencils to color it), so I made him a little swimmy summer scene. The circles were cut with Spellbinders dies - I layered both panels together so the cuts lined up. There is a piece of acetate sandwiched between. I embossed Cover-a-Card Bubbles over the panel, then brushed some chalk ink over the embossing at the top and the bottom of the panel, using a "direct-to-paper" technique. The sentiment is a partial impression - the full sentiment is HERE.
