There are plenty more fish in the sea!!!

hey there,
well here I am again..with yes another tag!!!!
so here is my sea of greens for the artful times challenge and a few others too,:
I am not a green person, but I love, love crafting using greens..so  i started by making a inky background with my distress stains, i now love these almost as much as my DI!!! I did say almost!  When dry..ok I admit i blasted it with the heat gun, i stamped the fab image from paperartsy in jet black archival..and the great quote..

I added some of the small fish stamped in shabby shutters and a fab Tim flourish in jet black archival.
I added some ideaology to the fishy balloony thingy and some glossy accents to the eye. To complete some vintage ribbon coloured in stains, a paperartsy quote and some fab floral trim, coloured with stains to represent the sea...

Finally added some fab fish using a fantastic Tim technique..using shrink plastic, utee and a melt pot...just loved making these!!
I am entering this for the following challenges:
