CAS-ual Friday - A simple fishy card by Donna Gray.

Hi everyone,

It's Donna here today with a very simple card for you featuring one of my favourite fishy stamp sets at the moment :)

Isn't he just a cutie with his toothy grin?!

I stamped the fish from Fish Diet onto a piece of water colour paper and then used blue and green Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers to colour him in, using a water brush to dilute the colours.

Then using the ticket stamp from the Stitch and Frame stamp set I stamped it onto more watercolour paper and used a couple of Distress Inks to age it slightly. Both the images were fussy cut out which for the fish took a little while!

All that was left to do was add a Tim Holtz sticker sentiment and adhere the fish and ticket to the Kraft card using foam pads.

A simple card but when the image is this cute I wanted him as the star!

Stamps Used:

Stitch and Frame

Fish Diet

Hope you like it
