Shark Time

Hello Everybody!

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! :)
