Colour Create

My friend asked me to come up with a card for her father's 70th birthday. I always ask for a few details about the recipient in order to try to make the card personal to them... their interests, lifestyle etc. All that Sue could come up with for her dad was that he liked to sit and watch his goldfish in the pond in the garden.
SO here is a goldfish.
I coloured him with Copics and overlaid the image with 3D Clear Gloss Finish. The sentiment is from Cuddly Buddly and the embossing and lettering are Cuttlebug.
The little bits of pond weed are from a Nellie Snellen punch.
The colours are from this week's challenge at Colour Create, where an image from the new Alice in Wonderland film has been used. Really Whacky!
Yesterday I was trying to clean out the moss and other detritus from the block paving in the garden! Goodness what a job! I wanted to clean the garden furniture too, but the jet washer decided not to work! Don't you just hate that!
Hey Ho... today is another day!
