For today's MIX challenge, Lydia asked us to make it signed, sealed and delivered. In other words, use a glazing technique. So, I started with the tag and stamped the shells. There is more to this stamp, it goes all the around for a full frame. Next I colored with Copic markers and stamped the sentiment. Then used a little chalk to fill in the rest of the water. For my glazing I used Mod-Podge. It doesn't really show up in the photo, but it adds a nice shine to the shells and water. For trimmings, I have a metal fish charm, a couple of purple wooden beads and some dark brown yarn that has some sparkle in it :)
Another FUN Mix challenge!!!

Love your copic work and the shading on those shells. The embellishments make this such a neat tag. I also like how you chalked the water but left the white space for that awesome sentiment! What an awesome tag you created!
