Tantalizing Tuesday

Crafting wasn't working yesterday, nothing seem to go right so I just coloured this Sugar Nellie Fisherman from Funky kits with no idea what to do with it but I must have been thinking of Friday sketchers because while colouring I thought about Jane Dean's idea of recycling the onion netting for a beach LO she did couple of years ago. I still have some orange BG and the fish were left over from another card, just needed an embellishment that wasn't a flower thats where the bottle cap came from using one the fish and some glossy accents. Now this cheeky chappie was already coloured was going to use him the other week with the High Hopes Giraffe and Tiger but changed my mind. I used BG papers and Sketch Saturday sketch, not sure if its a bit of a overload of patterned papers but it did help to get crafting again yesterday.
