Hello Everyone...and welcome to Delightful Thursday at Digital Delights ..

Time for the DT to showcase some cute images that Wendy has over at the Shop

This week I went all fishy...with Happy Fish

He is so cute and so easy to can make him any colour of the rainbow..

I coloured Happy Fish with copics this time and added gold gel pen to his fins and tail..
white gel pen for his cheeks [some fish have freckles you know!]

Added glass bubble gems and tied a fancy knot in the cord along the bottom.

The background is a fish tank poster...the ones you stick at the back of your tank to make it pretty...I photographed it and shrunk it down...the man in the pet shop looked at me rather strangely...I just smiled and said "pretty isn't it"..and walked

So there we go...a simple but colourful card..and you can check out what my teamies have done HERE 

Copics used..

Thanks so much for stopping by...another pixie caramel tonight..YUM!!

See you tomorrow..

What a brilliant background for your sweet fish!
I know just the look you're talking about. When I was on holiday in Spain they served the French fries in some glossy paper with newspaper print. Hubby asked the waiter if he could bring us a sheet or two, he came back with some, looking like a question mark, he's probably still wondering if we really meant the sheets or an additional portion...
