I love Shark Week!
It's truly one of my favorite parts of summer :)
Even with the movie JAWS, which changed my life!
I was 6 years old ......... and wow!
Still a classic :)
We're swimming away from Shark Week,
a week long burst of new shark videos,
documentaries and learning tools to make the world a better planet :)
But each year, in addition to watching the Discovery channel,
I try to use my shark stamps in creative ways
to showcase these mighty creatures ... like today's card.
This was truly SO MUCH FUN to make!
Lawn Fawn has a challenge to create a summer theme card
and for me, it's always beach time and we do a lot of snorkeling.
I've had ear surgery that doesn't allow me to go below 6' of water
so I stay really close to the surface and glide snorkel :)
On our honeymoon in Hawaii, we saw a shark swimming below us
and I did some Olympic quality swimming to get back to our boat!
Truthfully, it didn't pay us any mind and was living in it's home
and swam peacefully away but I stayed on the boat the rest of the time!
And I just love, LOVE this card <3
It was a lot of fun to make .... so let me tell you how!
I started with blending a background using Distress Inks.
It dried quickly so I used my wave embossing folder and Simon Hurley's
lunar paste in clear skies to give it extra oooompf :)
I adore the background!
be creating background again!
Finally, I stamped/die cut/colored all the images for an underwater scene
to show the cute shark
("He's a nice guy!" - my 2 y/o granddaughter, Alice)
and the beautiful coral reef with colorful sea life!
And that's my card!
Thanks for stopping by today!
