Cajun Fishing

I had a lot of fun with the OWH World Card Making Blog Hop.  Thanks to everyone who stopped by and left messages on my blog. All of the cards were great and the best part is that the heroes will have some fabulous cards to send home to their loved ones.

I am using the OWH Card Sketch #193 for my card today.  For the color I found some inspiration on Dynamic Duos.  At first Cajun Craze and Island Indigo seemed like a stretch for me, but then I found a way to combine them that made sense to me.

I used the stamp set By the Tide.  I stamped the coral/seaweed with Cajun Craze ink at full strength at the bottom of the Very Vanilla card layer then stamped off twice to create the background.  I stamped the fish in Island Indigo twice (stamped off once).  I added a Cajun Craze and Island Indigo layer behind the stamping and then attached the whole thing to a Crumb Cake card base.

Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Your card caught my eye! I studied the card and can see that you carefully layered the stamping to create the dimensional effect. Very nice! Perfect card for anyone and great sentiment for any occasion. Love it!
