My dotty background paper is from the DCWV Nana’s Kids stack.  The boat was cut from the Disney Mickey and Friends Cricut cartridge.  I have used a Paper Shelter digi stamp, called When in Doubt, Exaggerate, and coloured it with ProMarkers.  I just love how grumpy the fish is!  I added accents with gel pens, a light smear of Liquid Pearls on his tail fins, just to make them a bit pearlescent, and some ‘warts’ with Liquid Pearls too.  I also added Glossy Accents to the puddle of water they’re sitting in, and to the fish’s eyes.  The sandy corners are Little B stickers; the lighthouse and cloud are Creative Mates stickers (Lincraft); the dolphin and bottom left palm tree are Dress It Up buttons, and the shells around the message tag are Eyelet Outlet brads.  

I will be entering this card into the following challenges:
