Best Fishes

Morning all! Its brand new challenge time over at Polkadoodles and this fortnight it's 'Anything But Square' so that got me thinking...... how about a shaped card? So I had a little look through some of the recent collections and decided on a shell from Winnie Starfish & Sandcastles. I dragged 2 of the shells into my graphics programme and flipped one alongside the other (scalloped edge to scalloped edge) slightly overlapping to create a fold line. It was then printed off, cut out, and the edges were inked, I then I sprayed it with glitter. Next I printed off 3 of the cute little fishes and 3 Seahorses along with one of the sentiments and some foliage.

I created my own decoupage by cutting pieces away on the fish and seahorse then sprayed those with glitter and added some glossy accents on the eyes and layered them up. I used one of my label dies around my sentiment then added some foliage and pearls to finish off.

Now it's your turn we can't wait to see what you come up with BUT all is not lost if you're struggling because as from today if you really can't think of anything you can still add your creation as we are adding 'Anything Goes' to our challenges. Even more reason to join in the fun!

Thanks so much for stopping by I do love to read all of your comments.
