DCM - FROGS OR FISH!

"It's Rein here this week with a new dare: I want to see a fish or a frog on your cards."

This one posed a bit of a problem for me as I had used a frog on the last weeks dare! But I started to think about fish and remembered that it was the zodiac month of Pisces!!! So I immediately looked to my favourite modern artist, Susan Seddon Boulet, to provide me with an image to make a card for a dear friend. I stamped swirls onto some BG mottled pale blue card and coloured in with a silver pen, tho I don't think the silver shows up too much...sorry. I added some beads and a silver swirl. I didn't want to detract from the beautiful image.

The image that I used is called Pisces and if you look closely (hope you can) you will see the fish in her hair. Neptune is looking over her shoulder as well. Susan Seddon Boulet's work was amazingly detailed, esp her more spiritual stuff. Please take a look at her work. Sadly she died a few years ago and I can't find her website now but take a look at the images Google chucked up HERE!
Thank you so much for coming to my blog to take a look XXX

Flippin' heck Karen, this is so so lovely. What you've done really sets this image off. Such a lovely image too, I will take a look at the link you've provided. XX

Beautiful card and the silvery beads and swirls are perfect embellishments - totally fitting (the beads are like little silvery bubbles!) but not distracting, great job!
