Summer Tag Box

I made this cute little Tag Box today and loved how it turned out. It is so summery! I got the template here...http://www.jersgirl.com/temps.html So many templates, so little time!
First I stamped all my images, which by the way are from studioG...got to love those dollar stamps!! I used black stazon so my ink wouldn't run...

Then I colored them in using my Stampin Up markers. I don't know what I would do with out my markers!!! I tried giving my images a little depth by first marking the area with a darker color then going over it with a lighter color. I think it gave it a nice effect.

Then after I colored all my images...

I sponged my water. I masked my fishes, by stamping an extra fish covering the already colored fish and sponging around them.

Then I cut out my images, pasted them on and put my Tag Box together. I think it came out pretty good, if I do say so myself!
