Here's my card for the first Waltzingmouse Fanatics challenge. I've missed playing along in the weekly Waltzingmouse Stamps sketch challenges, so I was happy to see this challenge blog start up.
The cutout sub image is adhered to a blue cardstock panel with a freehand cut wavy edge. I layered two torn kraft cardstock strips at the bottom of the panel to look like a sandy patch and added a trio of stamped and colored fish. The panel is adhered to a dotted aqua panel "sky," then set on an aqua card base. After considering a few different placement options, I stamped the "ahoy matey" sentiment on a strip of aqua cardstock and adhered it to the dotted paper panel above the sub image to finish the card.
