CPS Sketch Challenge 217

I just love CARD POSITIONING SYSTEMS' SKETCHES. I like simplicity. So I decided to play in this week's CPS CARD SKETCH 217. I really thought outside the box on this one (big surprise I know). I hope you get my humor and are not gasping. This cute little fishy (made by using Paper Smooches Free May Digi Bee into a fish by cutting off the feelers and stinger) is just playing an April Fool's joke.

This card is also for Paper Smooches June Guest Designer Search and the CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE 118...BANNERS on SCS.

I colored my fish (bee in disguise hee) using Copic Y38 twice then dotted with YR04. I like the look. Then I added tiny googley eyes and covered with dimensional glaze and popped up upside down. The sentiment is a font called SNF Meadow from scrapnfonts designed by Kim Hughes. I thought it was fitting to use her font with her digi.

INK:Printer, Copics Y38, YR04
ACCESSORIES:Spellbinders Circle Nestabilities, Cuttlebug, Googley Eyes, Diamond Effects (SU), Scotch Foam Tape
