A little fishy



[Did you ever notice how colors sometimes change in a photograph? Case in point, this card. The scalloped circle is purple but it insists on being photographed blue. Not sure why, because the rest of the purple looks purple. ]

This cute little fish guy is for CPS 120 and Off the Wall 20. OTWC20 is a color challenge incorporating light blue, purple (hence the concern about purple) and white. You can see the inspiration photo below.

This fish is actually a pre-painted little wooden piece, mounted on a nestie. I used mini brads for his little breathing bubbles. Waves are from a little Zimprints stamp I've had forever -- I just thought that would be a fun way to do the lines the CPS sketch calls for (colors are Versamagic Sea Breeze and Rubber Stampede Metallic Purple.)

That's it, classic clean and simple.

  1. What a fun and colorful fish. I like how you made waves of the three horizontal strips of the sketch.
