Tropical fish

Morning All and thanks for popping in

And a big welcome to my NEW followers :)

Lovely to see you 

Been thinking whether to go into town today or buy on line.
Yes on-line has won. 

Its my Sons 40th Birthday today, seems only like yesterday that he was born
I can remember the time so well
giving birth in a little cottage hospital. 

Are cottage hospitals still around now? 

Progress - and to think back then I had to stay in hospital for 
14 days ! not like that now - so I understand.

Anyway back to my crafting. 

Been waiting to show this card to you and now the day is the day 
here it is. 

I started with a selection of handmade papers

Used Clarity stamps Fish and seaweed, stamping in black archival inks. 

The coloured in with various inks, paints, acrylic paints to make the picture
you can see in this photo how the fish shine in the light

I do hope you and my Son likes the card.

I would like to enter it for the following 


Thanks for popping in and look forward to 
seeing you again.
