I made this little card for a one of my son's friends who is having a birthday. He loves sharks and that is the theme of his birthday. So I was looking through my Life is a Beach Cricut Cartridge and cut this shark card out.
It's 3.5 by 3.5. For the water I took a piece of clear scraps (which comes in sheets but is thicker than a transparency but you can cut it and emboss it etc) and added alcohol inks to it. I do think that Ranger's alcohol inks are magical. Each time is a different result. I took two blues and the silver and inked the applicator and then there is water. :)
I used a Faber-Castell white PITT artist pen to outline the shark. Maya Arts twine outlines the card.
I added a googly eye and a birthday hat and now he is ready to party!
I went on YouTube to see how to make an envelope for it. I have the Martha Stewart score thing with the envelope and was able to get the measurements and see how to do it. (Which is easy by the way) :)
I am entering this cute lil' shark into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Magic-Alcohol Inks are magical. (and so is my cricut really!) :)
Thank you for stopping by! Until next time my friends...I'm ready for some cake and ice cream! :)
