CAS52 -- One more time

Yesterday morning Brandon and I created 2 cards for the CAS challenge on SCS. He did his first, and then I did one. My card was really a CASE of his. I didn't realize how close they were, until I read the comments on SCS. My card looks like I slipped the pink scallop squares under the chocolate hearts. His looks very masculine and mine looks girly -- too funny.

We did another card last night for the challenge. Brandon was looking at the DP after I punched the scallop squares out. He said the line of scallops looked like the water in an ocean. So he wanted to do another card with fish. I think this is the only fish stamp I have. It's from the SAB sets from 2007, I think.

We stamped the fish on Whisper White and Brandon colored them in with a blender pen and ink. I helped him punch out his water with the slit punch. I tied the ribbon. Then he said there was too much white -- So we took the card apart, ran it through the cuttle bug with the bubble folder, and sponged with Cool Caribbean. Then he wasn't happy with the fish, so we stamped them again, colored them in, cut them out, and popped them up on dimensionals. Whew -- I thought this was supposed to be a Simple card.

Stamps: Very Punny
Paper: Pacific Point, Baja Breeze, Whisper White
Inks: Pacific Point, Baja Breeze, Cool Carribean, Basic Black
Extras: Slit punch, Baja ribbon, button, linen thread, cuttle bug, sponge

Wow, Brandon, that is such a great card. I think you have a good artist eye, seeing water in the piece of punched paper. I look forward to seeing more of your cards.
