Something Fishy for FSC

I've Just completed this tag for the Fashionable Stamping Challenges #19 'Nautical'.  I've used a Paper Artsy stamp of a child with a fish stamped in black Archival ink onto watercolour paper and coloured with Distress re-Inkers using my newly acquired Tim Holtz water brush, I don't know why I haven't had one of these before, great fun to use.  The small shells were stamped with a tiny Clarity stamp I've had for ages and coloured with various distress inks and glazed with glossy medium. I've also added a real shell. The starfish have been stamped and embossed with Ranger distress embossing powder. I then coloured them with Stazon ink for variation. The palm fronds are from a set of stamps from Stampscapes inc. I've actually double stamped the child and cut 'him' out and raised him up on foam pads. All in all an enjoyable evenings 'work'
Here's a close up showing the dimensional aspect of the tag.
