365 Cards - Day 58 and Papertake weekly challenge

The theme on 365 cards is Something Fishy

Put at least one image of a fish on your card. This can be in the form of a stamp, patterned paper, a hand-drawn image, or anything you can think of.

Also the theme on Papertake Weekly challenge is Spots and Stripes

So here is my card

I used the strip paper at the top of the card to mimic the deck chairs you get at the beach, added spotted paper under that and then the Blue which has been cut to make 'waves'.

The top of the waves have been painted in White Perfect Pearls to add shimmer and the bottom of the Beige card has been painted in Gold.

I cut a small piece of pale Yellow to make a Wind Sock on which to add a sentiment.

The Fish are hand drawn onto Shrink Plastic and coloured in using Sharpie pens, I have added bubbles using Glossy accents.

Papers are all English Paper Co.

Now it's finished I dont really like it but it was the only idea I could come up with using Fish, never mind tomorrow's another challenge!

You did a great job on today's challenge! I think we all gave it a pretty good shot, as a fish card isn't easy to come up with! I know I struggled with it!

hugs, Karen Lee

Hand drawn anything is amazing in my book! I have NO artistic talent whatsoever. That's why I stamp! LOL Great job!
