Best Fishes for a Cool Holiday Season–Crazy 4 Challenges #461


Hi everyone, today I have another Crazy 4 Challenges card and this one’s a sketch. Love the classic design of this sketch.


I decided to create a little scene within the circle element so I cut the circle out of some Sweet Tooth card stock with Inside & Out Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics, stamped the sentiment from the recently released Beary Best Friends Stamps Set, and popped it up on some Ranger Watercolor paper on which I did a watercolor background. I adhered all that to a Sweet Tooth card stock base and proceeded.


The images were stamped with Extreme Black hybrid ink on No Line Coloring card stock, cut out with the coordinating Die-namics, colored with Copic markers, and popped up in the scene on foam tape. I added some Puffy Clouds and Icebergs Die-namics to complete the scene.

And that’s it from me today. Hope to see you playing along with us this week at
Crazy 4 Challenges. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week, too!
