CASology #5 - POND

More white space. I think it might be becoming some sort of addiction. Between that & my corner rounder, I think I'll need an intervention shortly!

This week's cue card from CASology had me stumped for most of the week, until I found this hilarious fish stamp while looking for something else.
Supplies: Fish stamp from All Night Media;
sentiment & bubbles from Hero Arts;
Tumbled Glass distress ink;
Palette Noir ink;
Sakura Stardust glitter pen;
standard circle Nesties
It took several tries to be happy with my inked circle - I cut it out from scrap paper, and sponged ink over the negative. And then recycled it a time or two...when I was happy with this one, then I stamped & coloured the fish & bubbles. The main panel is trimmed shorter than the card front (but the same width), opposite corners rounded (natch, apparently now an addiction), and the edges inked directly with the Tumbled Glass pad. Then the whole panel is mounted to the card base with foam tape. 

xoxo,
Jessi

What a fabulously fun fish this is!! This card definitely put a smile on my face when I saw it! Love it!! Wow, you had quite the move there, 6000 km!! Wow!! I only moved 40 km nine years ago and that took some time adjusting as well, so I couldn't imagine this! Hope you do feel at home now! Thanks for sharing!!
Hugs, Wendy
