CAS Monday with Fish

This week's CAS challenge is to create a card inspired by the title of this Dr. Seuss book, "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish".  I went pretty obvious with this one.  This card ended up being somewhat out of my comfort zone for several reasons.  First, I hand cut my own stamp from the extra rubber that comes in my SU sets!!!  Can you believe it?  Next, I wrote on the card via the eyes, mouth and water splashes.  Finally, I used 4 different colors.  That is a lot for me!!

I incorporated a couple more challenge here.  I used the 100th sketch from the clean and simple stamping blog.  the scallops across the bottom reminded me of waves, so I went with it!  The other challenge I used was Kim Hughes' Dare To Get Dirty challenge and you can find it here.

Thanks for stopping by!

Details - Stamps: One of a Kind, hand cut fish from leftover rubber; Paper: Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise; Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Real Red, Brilliant Blue; Accessories: Wide Saffron grosgrain, glue dot, slot punch.
