Rainbows and Goldfishies

It was a bit of a draughty showery old day today - definitely not one for a nice hair do and even more so when it's in dire need of a cut!  It definitely doesn't look as good as my Tiddly Inks girl ;)
Coloured with watercolour pencils - her dress does match my pink backing in real life but it seems to be another colour my camera won't do!   Sparkle added to her bows and balloons with my clear glitter pen - what did I do before I had one of these? I seem to use it on almost every card!
Couple of snippets of colourful DP from my stash - you'd laugh at the little tiddly bit I have left but don't want to chuck!

I still haven't got round to tidying my desk so these Avery Elle stamps are still knocking around and when I saw this beauiful goldfish card in Tracey's gallery - this week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast - I thought they'd be perfect for my nephew's birthday card!

Coloured with watercolour pencils, lots of sparkle added with my clear glitter pen and then clear gloss added to their eyes and teeth.  Birthday die from Simon Says Stamp.  Coloured enamel accents and a doodled border to finish.
I know there's a lot of 'girlie' sparkle on it, but I'm hoping the expression on their faces cancels that out!


  1. Ohh my I love those fish, such expressive faces, they truly crack me up. Beautiful colouring of the little girl. both cards are wonderful on the eye.

  7. Wonderful snippets card (and I love the fishes too!). How clever to add the butterfly on your snippets card using the same paper - it really does make such an impact! Beautiful colouring as well.

  9. Tiddly is adorable with her sparkly bow!! and the background for your fishes is over the top great! you are my "background mentor" friend!!


  10. Two more great cards, Lynne. Your little Tiddly Inks girls is just the sweetest. Your corner die-cuts reminded me that I should use some of my corner dies more. I always forget about them. Love your fish, too. Seems there should be an "Angry Fish" game to play as a change from "Angry Birds." These fish could definitely be the mascots. :)

  11. Two gorgeous cards here, I love those wonderful fish.
