 She sure is one gorgeous funky fish !!

I've done my usual and decoupage her and some of the bubbles, coloured in with promarkers and glazes her eyes and all the bubbles with glossy accents. Cut a sizzix frame from white card and then embossed it using a Stampin Up folder to frame her and then cut another piece of white card to mount behind her and embossed it with a cuttlebug embossing folder. Fussy cut out some shells and used a pale blue promarker to give them some shadow. Then added a couple of bits of lilic ribbon which I twisted and then some pinky pearl string of beads. Finished off with a hand writtern "Fishy Wishes" greeting !!

The Robyns Fetish Challenge #164 TAGS

Another nice and easy challenge for you peeps "TAGS" !!  We are sponsored this week by Melonheadz Illustrations with a fab  $15 gift certificate prize.

I've made three tags into a cute mini book using images from Melonheadz Illustrations "Water Fun Bundle"

All my images have been cut out and coloured using promakers and some have glossy accents on which doesn't show up in my photos. Each tag has been covered with two diffrent papers and I hand drew my wall on first tag. All the images have been raised using 3d foam tape. The large FUN letters were cut usng my cricut , then hand coloured and glued onto each tag. Left room for some photo's to be added later. Punched a hole in top of each tag and added yellow ribbon to the binding ring to finish off.

See what the rest of the team have done with their tags over at

Harriet's been Zentangled !!

It was her big hat that made me do it !!

You can find Harriet HERE 
Zentangle is just doodling to fill a space. You can keep it simple like I did and it still looks fab !!  I started with a white shaped card and then zentanlged the edge. Cut a sizzix frame and zentangled the patteren all over it, put 3d foam tape on the back and then stuck onto the front of my card. Stamped my sentiment on front of card as well. Printed Harriet onto another piece of card then fussy cut round her and zentangled her hat, lolly and dress, Coloured her face, hands and legs with blush promarker. Put her on 3d foam as well and attached her to the frame. Cut two hearts using a marrianne die and stamped sweet heart onto both which is a matching stamp that comes with the die.

Have a go its so much fun !!
