Fishy Face

When I saw the color scheme for this weeks CSI case, I thought this photo would go well with the challenge.   The photo was taken on our visit to the aquarium.  I crawled into one of those bubble windows in the piranha tank, not an easy feat!  This is my best fishy face.

I couldn't find a decorative fishing net, so I got some hemp twine and crocheted one.  I like how it turned out, but it was a bit painful as the twine is rough.  For my evidence, I cut some seaweed leaves out of green paper, in the challenge colors, and then distressed the edges, crinkled the face and then inked them.  For my other evidence, I used my die cutting machine to cut out the fish and the anchor from the eggplant color.  I also used the eggplant paper to make my little urchin.  My red is in the die cut paper and the flesh color is the background cardstock.

I loved this week's case!

This is so fun! I love the red & white shaped background with the green "grass" against it. And the corded netting is really, really cool!
