Your fin-tastic

On the Magnolia challanege blog the challenge is to use metal.I have used metal sheet to cover a piece of chipboard to make a frame. I have coloured the metal with Tim Holtz alcholic inks.
I have included 2 metal fish brads. They where painted all over and the colours where abit over powering, I sanded them so that the detail is picked out with the colour only.
The background and sentiment is by High hope stamps.
The pink shell stamps are by Magnolia.
The kids under water are mine lol. Taken at Florida last year swimming in the pool. That was the last family holiday together as my eldest has left home now.
