Anyway today day's card features the shark from Somethings Fishy! I really like sharks, i think they get a bad rap and too many are killed just because they are doing what sharks do naturally, eat!! So i had to do up a card using the shark image!

I started by stamping the shark on some watercolor paper, then used a grey distress marker with a touch of black to color the shark. I fussy cut him out and set him aside.

Next i cut a circle from water color paper and used an ink applicator to add blue ink to the circle. I made the bottom darker and faded it out to the top. Next i used plain water to add some random water droplets, let that dry then added opaque white spray ink droplets.

When the circle was dry i added the shark with foam tape, then adhered the circle with foam tape to a white card base. I stamped the sentiment below the circle and last rounded the cards corners!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
