Tag it On - Fishes

Welcome to another Dragons Dream Tag it On Challenge - thanks for playing last week - but we'd love to see more of you taking part. Click the link and take part with us!!  This week's theme was chosen by Janet, and is "fishes"

As it happens, before the theme was set, I had received the Crafters Workshop fish template and made a start to this one!

I used a thin layer of broken china distress stain on the tag, then used the fish template and more distress inks to add some fish, and the weeds at the bottom.
I rummaged through my drawers of stamps to find the fish stamps (that was a struggle!!) and added the little groups of fish and what I think is meant to be an Angel fish. Some shimmer was added with the viva gold paste 'steel blue' and some toning ribbon.
I had a little bit of an 'oops' moment, bet you can guess where.... and how I disguised it...

A love fishy tag. The use of different colours for the fish is very effective, and the way you have covered the oops moment adds to the overall effect.

Fun tag, great background. I especially like the shoals of little fish with bubbles, made me smile.

Helen, no need to admit to an oops moment. Your tag is excellent. I love the pretty ocean-like colors.

These are really beautiful and do you know, in all my huge stash of stamps; I don't have any fish ones.
I need fish stamps after seeing your lovely work.
Thanks for the inspiration.
Have a wonderful day!
