House Mouse Holey Fishbowl

In my brain this seemed like a really cool way to interpret the Aperture Challenge at House Mouse & Friends, but I’m not sure it translated to reality as cool. An aperture is a hole or opening in the front of your card. I piled on a few other challenges as well to make it even trickier. (Please see the Ins and Outs for links to the challenge websites and feel free to join in the fun).
Sketch Inspiration ~ Stamps & Smiles Challenge #37
365 Cards Day 185 ~ Feeling Blue (3 shades of blue on card) My fish are 2 shades of blue, the food tin is blue, and the water is blue. Inspiration House Mouse #55 ~ Aperture Belli Challenge #77 ~ Raffia or Twine 365 Cards Day 238 ~ Fine Twine (use twine on card) 365 Cards Day 135 ~ On the Outside Looking In (create a window on your card using some see-through material)
365 Cards Day 32 ~ Imagine This: Water My Creation Image Detail
I added glaze to the ‘water’ portion of the fish bowl for dimension.
