Some-fin special about you!

 Happy Monday, friends!

you. are. jawsome!
There's some-fin really special about you! 

 I'm playing along with the inspiration at Splitcoastampers challenge
that gave us a wonderful site of wall murals.
My son loves

And I love stamping them!

win/win! :) 

I've used Friends with fins from My Favorite Things stamps
and he's certainly one of the cuter sharks I've seen.

 This card was a labor love!

To create this one, I did a lot of oxide blending with different shades of blue
distress inks. Once they were blended, I ran them through my Gemini Jr
with a cloud die, turned upside down for the waves.
I stamped/cut/colored the shark from the My Favorite Things stamp set
Friends with Fins and used the shark image.
It's popped up on 3d foam for a jumping out of the water effect.
Once that was finished, I added a simple die frame panel to the front.

Here's the mural that inspired my photo

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
