A little reward....

Hello lovely peeps!

I finished my assignment this afternoon - phew! so I decided to treat myself to a crafty hour... I was inspired by my team mate Shirley's beautiful card made with Ryn's sea dragon, and decided it was time I did another watercolour/fishy card...
I used Tombow pens on watercolour paper to make the turquoise background, then I 'blew' green ink across the paper to make the seaweed - great fun!!  I dusted Ryn's butterfly fish with perfect pearls to make it shine and stamped leafy branch around the edge.


I've been playing with my beautiful Lavinia stamps too, but I can't show you that as it's for the challenge blog another time!! ;)

Thanks for popping by, hope you'll leave me a 'hello' message! xxx
