Fish You a Great Day!

Well I finally got some stamping done yesterday afternoon and created this card ... as I mentioned in yesterdays post it was inspired by two other cards I made earlier in the week my fishy fishy card and my sneak peek ... maybe card .... which btw I haven't forgotten about I am still waiting for the stamps to finish that card hopefully that will be early next week!

I think this is about the 3rd card I have created using this particular sketch in the past week or so ... I am enjoying it so much .... I am sure i will move on eventually but I may come back to it every so often :) .... btw I originally found this sketch on Captain Crafters blog.

This is a fairly simple card ... I stamps the ocean bed onto white card and cut it out and attached to the bottom of my folded blue card. I used my corner punch to create the scallops along the bottom edge of my rectangle panel and finally I used my circle nestabilities to create all my circles for the card ... I stamped the fish to the white circle, colored the fish and then sponged around the white space with my celeste blue impress ink pad. Oh and I also added brads to this one of course!

You have beautiful cards!
I wanted to ask, if you don't mind, how you prepare your photos of your cards to look so clean?
