Wanda the Angel Fish

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.     Spring has has finally arrived, it's wonderful but I continue to be extremely busy trying to catch up in the gardens.   Life is super busy these days and I don't have the time to craft as much as I would like or visit blogs as often.  Eventually things will calm down.

I have a sea scene today using stamps by Designs by Ryn.  


The background is Dylusions Inks.  I stamped Spiral Shell with Salty Ocean Distress ink, but it's hard to see.    I embossed Sea Bubbles with gold and School of Fish and Rising Bubbles were stamped with Cobalt Archival ink.   Wanda the Angel Fish was also stamped with the Cobalt ink, coloured with Tombow markers, highlighted with a white Gellyroll pen, decoupaged and attached. 


Thanks for your visit and enjoy your day,
Shirley

We all have times when crafting has to take a back seat Shirley.

Love the fusion of greens and blues here, so fitting for the images.

I love these stamps you've used Shirley, and you've made a stunning card with them. I think these are some of my favorites of Ryn's stamps. With all your catching up in the garden that you have to do, it a good job you love gardening. Glad spring has finally arrived for you.

Just saw this on FB and had to pop over for a closer look. WOW! I'm loving that gold bubble emboss. Really makes this standout. Your usual attention to all the colorful details, and a wonderful use of the fab Ryn stamps. So glad Spring has arrived for your area, but don't work too hard trying to get it all done at once! TFS & Hugs

This card is beautiful Shirley and I just adore the angel fish. The background stamping is lovely, especially the gold Sea Bubbles, and all the pretty fish with Wanda as the focal point make this card a real winner. So glad you are at last able to get outside and garden and our weather has warmed up here this week too so we may get to the coast which I love. Don't work too hard! x

How beautiful this is, Shirley with the big fish and then the shoal of fishes. I also like your lime frame, choosing the final touch of colour of the frame can be difficult.
