Delightful things for Thursday!

Today I get to showcase this adorable image "Smiling Fish" from Digital Delights by Louby Loo! Isn't he just the cutest little guy!
I sponged my undersea background using distress inks and a sponge dauber. The sand was created using torn paper as my template and three shades of brown. The water was 3 shades of blue. My seaweed was created using a couple of foliage stamps from Skipping Stones Design. I heat embossed them so that I could sponge right over the top without changing their color.
I colored my fish with Prismacolor pencils and blended them using my odorless mineral spirits. Stickles and dimensional adhesive finish off the little guy.
I used this fun sketch from the Midnight Madness challenge.

Peggy, A BIG WARM WELCOME to the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge we are delighted that you have joined us. I just adore your card. I have always been partial to fish as I used to have aquariums.
