Above & Beyond- A CAS Fish for Two Challenges :-)



Hi Stampers!!

This card was created for the Just Add Ink JAI169 Inspiration Photo and the CASology #49 Fish Challenge

 I hope you have the time to visit both sites- such wonderful Design Teams and loads of inspiration!



To create this Clean and Simple (CAS) card:


Use sticky notes to create the rectangular background area and using Sponge Daubers, apply Cool Cabana ad Strawberry Slush Classic Ink. 

Ink the script stamp from By The Tide with Midnight Muse Classic Ink and stamp off once before stamping over the sponged area. 

Ink the coral stamp using Basic Black Classic Ink and then stamp again, this time inking with Strawberry Slush Classic Ink.

Ink the sentiment from One in A Million using Island Indigo Classic Ink onto Whisper White and mount the background panel onto the Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals® (I cannot stamp directly onto a cad base without smudging the ink :-))

Ink the fish image with Basic Black and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock.  Carefully cut out the fish and using Sponge Daubers, apply Strawberry Slush and Island Indigo Classic Ink.

Mount the sponged sea panel onto the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals® along with the fish image to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  By The Tide, One in A Million

Ink: Cool Cabana, Strawberry Slush, Island Indigo, Basic Black

Paper: Whisper White

Accessories:  Sponge Daubers, Stampin’ Dimensionals®. Sticky Notes for masking


Thanks again for stopping by- I hope you enjoy this fishy card!!
