Just keep swimming.....

Good morning, it's still hot here in Michigan be we are enjoying the sunshine!

It's the last Saturday of the month which means another new release from Scrapper's Delights and it is so fitting for us this month as we have finally got our marine reef tank set up with fish and other creatures.
So the release this month is mermaids BUT we also have Sea Rock 2 which when paired with the fish that were released earlier this month make a fantastic scene 

I decided to make my own fish tank. I add 2 of the cute happy fish to the rock to make a scene then printed and colored the image with my alcohol markers. making the fish look like Dory to appease Mollie.

Once colored I added some real shells to the tank bottom.

 I then cut a frame from black card ensuring the aperture was the right size to show all of my image I than added acetate for the front of my "tank". 4 strips of the same card were then concertinaed and adhered to the frame and then fixed to edges of the image to make it stand proud and form the tank. A few more shells were added to the frame just for decoration.

There are more images being release this weekend and you can find examples of what you can do with all of them on my teamies blogs the addresses for these can be found on the new release post over at Scrapper's Delights.

Ingredients used:
