Pisces

Deborah Wainwright has a new challenge based around the zodiac. This month is Pisces. As I said last month, I know very little about the zodiac so I'm learning as I go! Deborah kindly asked if I'd design something for the theme and this is what I came up with!
I covered a small mdf board with several layers of paint (Caribbean Sea, Bougainvillea and Chalk) and added some stencilling. I sanded the whole piece and added a little stamping in Gathered Twigs Distress Ink to the sides and the the edges of the board. Then I stamped the fish from a Lynne Perrella stamp on to some cream card and directly to the board. With the card I used the same colours I'd used on the board, watered down and painted but added a little Banana for contrast!
I added a die cut border and the brass plate and that was that! 
I have entered the challenge too (here) but I want to thank you Deborah very much for asking me to play along - I have really enjoyed being part of your challenge!
