CAS Fish collage

Hi everyone. I'm home from Alaska and back in the studio. Yea! I started out doing a clean and simple card to get my mojo going! It's been a long 8 days of not being able to get my fingers inky!


Stamp is from The Angel Company and is colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with OMS. American craft navy cardstock is used as the card base and to layer the collage.

The blue background is done using distress ink in peeled paint. I applied the ink directly to my craft sheet, spritzed with water and soaked up the ink with white card stock. After it dried, I ran it through the cuttlebug using an embossing plate from PTI. Love the texture.

Thanks for stopping by! More creations to follow as I just got my shipment in from A Muse. I had to see what all the new hype is about - so far I'm liking them!
