Tag to go.....

Hi there everyone
I hope this finds you well. I'm kinda getting on top of things I think though others may disagree. Anyway, I thought I'd share this tag with you today. Why the title; well this tag is winging itself off to America as it was done for a swap on a forum I'm part of. Hope the recipient likes it.
I cut the tag out of mount board and painted the background before masking and adding some sea detail.
The image was stamped onto card, cut out and coloured with distress markers.  So were the fish!
To make the "sand" I took some UTEE crystals, a couple of scoops of perfect pearls and mixed everything with glossy accents. Spread on with a palette knife and add some tiny shells and let dry.
Some baubles and ribbon to finish.
Hope you enjoy the rest of the day, even if it's not as nice as yesterday!
