By The Sea at That's Crafty Challenge blog

Hi Everyone
I hope that you've all had a fabulous week. Today we have the start of another new challenge fortnight over at That's Crafty Challenge Blog and our theme is

'By The Sea"

You can choose any sea or seaside related project.

I have chosen to go under the sea as my little piece of inspiration for you.

Background is splashes of aquatints and I have put some movement in by adding a piece of gauze that I have applied with matt medium and then coloured with distress crayons. I have then added circles using Seth Apter Robo ring die. I have added a little bubble stamping using one of the stamps from Leone Pujol Doodle drops set.
I have added some punched circles coming from the fish and added glossy accents to them.
Fish and sentiment is Carabelle Studio stamp 'Happy as a Fish'

I stamped the fish on a mop up piece of card and then just further coloured the tail with coloured pencils.
We would love it if you joined in with us this fortnight and you could be the winner of our usual prize of a £20 voucher to spend online at That's Crafty shop.

Have a fabulous weekend and see you soon
