T&F ATC: 'Fintastic'

That's torn it! is the theme for this week's ATC. I needed something quick this week, so I fished around (pardon the pun :D) and came up with this.

Very simple; stamped and cut out 2 fishes from 'down by the pond set' by The Greeting Farm (can you tell I love their stamps?!) and made one more manly by leaving out the lashes when inking! Coloured with Copics and coat of twinkling H2O on top. Used scrap piece of dp which reminded me of bubbles then just tore bits of card to make the grass, rock and sandy floor. Sentiment is also from the set. Quick and fun - hope you like it. Don't forget to hop on over to the ATC blog to check out what the other DT's have created and hope it'll inspire you to join in!


Managed to start a couple more cards last night, just trying to decide how to finish them and also got a couple of new DT stamps from Toodles & Binks drop through my door yesterday so will try and show you something with those too, sometime this week (or drop by the Toodles blog to see them there and also the candy on offer!). Think I managed to catch up some of my blog hopping but will try and do another round tonight if it's not to busy at work! Have a lovely day and hopefully see you tomorrow with my CCT card.

Speaking of The Greeting Farm ~ did you see the new Anyas??? I think we spoke too soon because they are about to come out I think!! It looks like there will be one for each of the 4 seasons. I think they are so cute and will have to get them!! (LOL)
