This Little Fishy.....

Afternoon crafty friends. You must forgive me for being such a rubbish blogger at the minute, some days I don't even get time to turn the 'puter on. Somebody popped into work yesterday and said "This time in two weeks time you'll be sitting down to your Xmas dinner" I nearly fell off my chair, who pinched all those weeks??

Anyway, I've just popped by to share a couple more of my fishy samples for Sheena's C&C shows tomorrow at 10am and 4pm.

Here's another H20 background. The seahorses are painted in silks and I've thrown in some embossing for good measure.

For this one I made a tag out of some corrugated cardboard which has been painted with white acrylic, some silks and then had some silver embossing powder applied to the corrugated bits. I added some torn book pages to the background and then stamped and cut out the seaweed, fish and shells which have been painted with the silks.

I hope your week is going well so far.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting.

A Fishy Tail

Afternoon folks.  Are you feeling like Christmas? It still isn't feeling very seasonal in The Craft Garden yet, I think it's the weather, it seems more like early Autumn than December. I still have lots of flowers blooming and on a good day can still dry washing outside!!!  I hope you survived the horrible winds last week without too much damage. We lost a few fence panels but nothing serious thank goodness.

I've spent the last few days cocooned in my crafty room getting all fishy with my last lot of DT samples of the year for Sheena's shows on C&C this Friday at 10am and 4pm. The new stamps compliment the last Coastal set beautifully.

Here is just a sneaky peek to wet your appetite

My favourite watery H20 background makes a lovely sea for these elegant fish to swim in. These is also a silhouette stamp of the fish on the plate which I have stamped with h20's on the background.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting.
