Fish in The Sea

Hey friends! Today my project is a bit different than my usual style. I was inspired by a couple different places Alley Way Stamps Challenge as well as a sketch I saw over at Chick-N-Scrap

I was also inspired by orange in the inspiration photo at Verve Stamps. 

Once in a while I try my hand at CAS (Clean And Simple - for those of you who don't know what CAS means, like me not too long ago! :)) but for some reason, I always feel like I need more on my cards... I think I feel like the more effort I put into a card, the better it will be. 

This sentiment is from Pink By Design and the fish is a free digi file available from The Alley Way Stamps. I took the digi (in PNG format) into Silhouette Studio, traced it and filled in various pieces of the fish. The fish's body is filled with digital paper from the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons. Then I printed out the fish, and cut it with my cameo! To avoid seeing any white along the edges, I used a black Zig pen to color in any white spots. I used a glossy sakura pen to draw my bubbles. 

I am so happy with this card and love how it turned out!! I will definitely be working on more CAS cards!!
