Flowers and Fish!

I think that I maybe lost the plot tonight, but I really enjoyed it.
Ellen Vargo's new stamps and her and Jo's interpretations sent my brain into a spin. ideas were popping about like a pinball machine. Also may I add, without the aid or hinder of alcohol!

I started by stamping in Archival Cornflower blue onto a Dylusions mop up page, using Ellens EEV04 stamps as I am Little Miss Impatient and can't wait for new ones to arrive.

From these I made 2 creations…….
A flower using florist wire with an umbrella spikelike top to attach petals.

And then I played with the other petals on a mop up background…….

And made a fish picture, using PA bubbly stamp, black, white and silver pens and some Portfolio pastels. Yes, it is a bit mad and it would look very at home on a junior school display but HEY, I enjoyed playing and it could lead to more refined work. 
Thanks for looking!
