Blogger posts temporarily taken off

As most of you know by now, Blogger has had major issues for the last couple of days and have announced that posts made from Wednesday until earlier this evening were temporarily disabled. This means that my Salt challenge post isn't available. I'll wait a day or two to see if it is brought back before I do it again (didn't keep a copy, so would have to start from scratch again).

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:
