You are Fintastic :)

I must accept that the CASology's Week 49 cue Card - FISH was kind of difficult for me, in the sense... I was getting ideas but non of them was good enough to my standards ;) I definitely wanted to create water and fish but HOW??? and then came CAS-ual Friday's challenge CFC106: over the edgeCreate a Clean And Simple card with an element that goes off the edge of the card front 
and.... BINGO!!! I was struck by an idea just like cupid's arrow strikes you right into your heart ;) LOL
Yeah yeah!!! I know I am being dramatic ;) okay let's cut the drama and show you what I came up with.



I love hand drawing the elements of my card. So to make this I hand drew a wave with dolphin jumping out and leaving a splash of water. I cut this out and used the negative of this image for masking and coloring the waves and water with memento dew drop blue inks. I colored the dolphin with black sharpie maker. I then stuck this cut out on card base using foam dots. The sentiment was printed from MS-word :)

My hand drawn image -

The challenges are -


Hope you enjoy my card :)

    I was first trying to guess the stamp set :P
    After I dropped by, I was stunned to see that you drew it :)
