Morning all.
An extra post this week as I was inspired by a couple of challenges I found while doing my DT comments.
At Muse this week the inspiration is by Marion Vagg.

She has used watercolour over resist white embossing and a textured card base. When I saw this I immediately thought goldfish, because of the lovely sunny flowers and watery background. I loved the woodgrain effct card she used for the card base but I haven't got anything like that so I used some coarse linen textured card I had in the stash. The stamp I used must be over 10yrs old but it fit the bill. It's from Inca Stamps and is called 'Stained Glass Fish.' I used my watercolour pens and waterbrush to colour the image after stamping and heat embossing in white.

I was also inspired by the challenge at Inkspirational, which is this sketch.

I shall also enter it in the following challenges:-
ATSM - Make Your Mark

So that's about it for today, thanks for popping by.
