Get Your Groove On

Good morning and happy Monday. Today I'm over at Country View Crafts with my second 'Under The Sea' piece. 

I'm really enjoying this challenge as I love the sea colours, and what's not to like about pink fishes and multicoloured seahorses!

I started by making inky backgrounds on 3 tags and an 8x8 piece of watercolour card. I really like how the old distress inks and the oxides work together. 

Next I added some stencilling and embossing with white embossing powder.

Now time for my sea creatures. The tiny stamps are by Lavinia, and the bigger ones are Art By Marlene, as is the sentiment. I really love my seahorse, he's been stamped on a piece of mop up card - oh how I love easy colouring!
Until I was typing this up I hadn't noticed my 'deliberate' error. Look at the small tag - there's a bit of upside down swimming going on! I'll just go and sort that out then I'll be right back!

What a numpty! THIS is how it should look! It's a good job I haven't told anyone!
So I hope that you join in with our fun challenge - you can have your fish swimming whichever way you like, I'll not notice!
I'm entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Stamp It challenge, and the
Craft Stamper TIMI September challenge which is Anything Goes.

Have a very happy week, and thanks so much for looking xx


  1. Love your fun under-water piece. And I'm sure fish can swim upside down, I can, too! Have a great week, hugs, Valerie

  2. haha you are a bundle of fun Sue, love the fab post.xx

  3. Yeah... your puffer fish is looking at you (and us) and is not impressed!! Great fun, Sue.

  4. Sue, you always make me smile, I didn't even notice they were upside down - duh! I love your sea themed project, the pink puffer fish is a delight and of course I adore the seahorses! Hugs, Anne xx

  5. I love the idea of using tags on the card front and love the result. He certainly is a magnificent looking seahorse. I hadn’t realised the tag was wrong way up either. Hugs Mrs A.

  6. This is absolutely gorgeous! I love the colours and I think upside down swimming is totally acceptable! xxxxxxx

  7. This looks so cool .... I love your pink fish and multi coloured seahorse. Thank you for playing along with the Craft Stamper challenge xx

  8. Ha-ha-ha!!! Your black fish were swimming backstroke :-D Great backgrounds and great card, Sue!!! Big hugs!!!

  9. Do fish not swim upside-down?! A brilliant piece - love the composition of the tag panels giving structure to your underwater swirls of colour, and how beautifully the pink and orange sea creatures pop against the background.
