A fish called Wanda?

When I went into Ryman's a few days ago to get a couple more Really Useful Boxes, I happened to see some fish shaped cards - a pack of 5 - which I thought might come in handy.

I coloured the fish body with Caran d'Ache watersoluble neocolor II, scribbling the colour first and then wiping over with a wet baby wipe. The tail was coloured with a Caran d'Ache water resistant neocolor I (this has a more pearlised look). I added a bit of colour here and there with a copic pen. A copic was also used to colour the sea and turquoise stickles added.

This is for:
