Lots of Fishes

Since it is so hot outside, lots of indoor activities on the schedule today!  As you know, I'm mostly an outdoor person, but being in the studio is making me happy today.  Allowing me my second post for the day---this is a first!

I was inspired by two challenges:  CASology #159 and CAS(E) this Sketch #136.  This is my second post for CAS(E) since I really like this sketch---so many possibilities.

Here's my one card that covers both challenges!

I used distressed ink to color some background,then used distress ink to stamp up some plants.  I colored the fish with copic markers.  I added a bit of glossy accents to make a few bubbles.

I used my wave stencil to add a bit of background to the white card, stamped a few little fishes and pop up the white card stock on foam tape.

Stamped the sentiment and that was it!  A simple card!

  1. Hello Susan: I think your little fish is just adorable, I love the sea scape you created for him to swim around in. Clever way to make bubbles, I have to keep that in mind.
