CAS77 - Faux Betta Fish Postage Stamps


Good Morning!  I made this card yesterday for the clean and simple challenge (CAS77) on SCS.  This week we were challenged to make a creation inspired by the title of this children's book -- one fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish.
I used my Betta Fish image from Doodle Pantry for the challenge... Talk about having the perfect image. Thanks, Laurie!  Since I already had this image downloaded and formatted on my computer, it was a breeze inserting it into a faux postage stamp template.  I love when an idea works out on paper!  Hope you like it too...
In case you are interested, here is the link to the challenge.  Have a great day and thanks for visiting!
Supplies: Stamps - Betta Fish by Doodle Pantry; Paper - SU! real red, marina mist, GP white, generic white for base; Ink - printer, Copics, pencils w/gamsol, Sakura clear star pen; Accessories:  EK Success corner punch, buttons from my stash, decorative edge scissors, pastels for shading.
