Something Fishy by Donna Gray


Hi everyone,

Donna here today with something a little fishy for you.

What I did:

I splodged little blobs of Fresco paint of green and blue onto a size 8 manila tag and then used a brayer to spread them evenly over the tag.

I dried the tag thoroughly and then spritzed a little bit of Distress Spray in a yellow to add a dappled pattern to the background.

The next step was to stamp the images from the That’s Crafty! Deep Sea Divas, Marina set in black Archival ink.

For the colouring in I decided to use all Posca pens as I wanted a more intense colour and these are very opaque so just be careful you don’t cover the details up!

I then used a black fine liner pen to doodle the ‘net’ effect in the background.

I added a Tim Holtz sentiment and some twine to the top of the tag as a finishing touch.

Thankfully the making of this tag went swimmingly well….sorry!!

Supplies Used:

Hope you like it
