Under the sea

 Today I was exploring whether I can make a sketch from a (non-CAS) challenge to work for CAS birthday card. I took color inspiration from another challenge and this is what I got:

I used watercolor to paint the lines, and my Creative Depot whimsical fish stamps. (I just love when stamps run in both directions!)

Entering it in the challenges that inspired me:

  3. Love it!! What cute little fish, and you made it perfectly CAS!! Thanks so much for sharing with us at Less is More!

  4. Alice, how clever to use the paints for the horizontal element in our Try Stampin' on Tuesday sketch challenge! I agree, too many stamp sets have the fish going all in the same direction, so I have stamps that feature both directions in my stash since 2002!! Thank you for sharing your card and creativity with us!!! -Donna
