These little Pet Goldfish hopped into my cart a while back, as I was planning the Underwater Scenes classes (now in pencil and watercolor as well as copic!) – but they sat there because, well, they’re domesticated and those scenes are in the wild! ha. I know, I could put goldfish in the sea but….I worried about them getting acclimated to being outdoors again! #yesimweird So instead – they’re just swimming in a circle. Some upside down. Some might not even BE goldfish. I’ll let you decide!

For the colors I just picked a rainbow’s worth. If you’ve taken Copic Jumpstart just pull out whatever colors you used on that color wheel and match it up! (You can do this card with watercolors or pencils too!)
Not into fish? Try something with a circular rainbow of flowers. Or tropical birds. Or anything at all!
I put a little treat inside the card too – a snail crawling up the side of the goldfish bowl!

Love your card I’m a sucker for a rainbow. I love that one of them is swimming to the beat of his own drum.
This was such a great idea, love the rainbow idea and goldfish in a wreath, so clever!
Love this card! Such a cute idea!
What a fun card! I love the sideways goldfish- he’s a rebel fish. There is always one in a crowd and you gotta appreciate his spunk.
Such a fun card! I just love those fish. Thanks for the inspiration! 😀

Love your gold fish–I just realized I have a Hero Arts goldfish layering stamp set, need to get it out and use it to make some rainbow fish! Thanks for teaching us!
Love all the colors of the fish!
You always come up with something or someway clever to make the simplest of images unique and beautiful.
A color wheel made of fish… love it!
Such a fun Blog Hop today. ….and Yes…I did notice the upside down gold fish…..only because I had seen him earlier…and thought he should have those staring type of eyes of his….made with Googly Eyes. LOL. Thanks Sandy, as always perfection!!!
Beautiful fish and such pretty colors. You always rock it!
I love your ring of fish! Thanks for the video!
I just discovered you a short time ago, but you have become a friendly face and a constant source of inspiration. Thank you for sharing your time and talents. This ‘gold fish’ (and beta) card was delightful
Such a fun design and way to use rainbow colors!
Love the circle of rainbow colored fish!
I love this fishy rainbow.
You always inspire me!!
Love the colors on your circle of fish! Pretty card!
A gorgeous surprise today Sandy. Thank you so much for showing your gorgeous card.
I love this awesome Pet Goldfish stamp set.
Have a great weekend.
Thanks for this, I was scheduled to be in your MFT class today but had to fly home to take care of my elderly mom. So sad I will miss you but I will catch you next time!
Stunning coloring as per usual! I love the rainbow fish and the way you designed this card!
Beautiful set of goldfish. Luckily the upside down one still looks lively!
You are so clever! Yes, I didn’t notice until you shared the bottom fish was upside down…lol. Love this Hero Arts set. Thank you for sharing all your passion and talents with us.
Rainbow-Colored anything is always a good thing. This circle of happy fish is too much fun! I think the upside down fish is fun – who says he isn’t showing off?
this is beautiful, like the bold vibrant colours, wonderful video. Always learn an fun from your teaching.
I would never have thought to color the fish in rainbow colors. I always want to color images in “real life” colors. Time to break out of that rut… Pretty card, Sandy. Thank!
This card turned out so cute and it’s ok if the fish is upside down. He will still survive. LOL
Cute, cute lil goldfish. Would never have known that fish was upside down, turned my screen around & still couldn’t tell. Isn’t that what comes under artistic licence ? Is to me lol x
Love your rainbow goldfish. 🙂
What a fun card design with this rainbow wreath of fish.
