Under the Sea

Morning all, a bit misty again here but hopefully it will burn off just like yesterday.
Hopefully it will be an improvement on yesterday in blogland as I did think of posting this card but Mr Linky was on strike. Not sure if it was just me but all the challenges I tried to look at yesterday had a fault on the InLinkz site. Pressed the blue link then nothing happened just the loading symbol, some had lost the list of entries completely! Anyway all back to normal now I hope.

This is the card I made with a couple of challenges in mind.

 Oh I do like to be beside the seaside


Bi weekly sketch

Obviously I went with UNDER the sea with this mosaic style fish stamp using white embossing powder and watercolours. The central panel I inked using DIs then bleached out some bubbles with water then hi lighted a few with homemade glossy accents. I die cut the image using my Cookie cutter squares then inked the waste with the DIs and then cut again to create a border.

OK better get a move on as I'm off to have my boobs squeezed at the hospital. Yep folks it's mamo time again. Hopefully things will be OK but it always makes me nervous, it's 8 years since the last op and it's a new hospital since we moved. 

By for now and thanks for calling round.
