Shark Shaker Card

Hello, everybody! Before I share my card, I would like to welcome my newest follower - Deb Bradley - thank you for joining me!


Today I have a fun shark card to share with you! I've been inspired by the Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge! The theme is Ombre!  I created an underwater scene with watercolour markers. This is the first time I've inked up my Newton's Nook Shark Bites stamps and I have to admit they are so much fun that I decided to make it a shaker card!  The sharks are coloured with watercolour markers as well. The stitched scalloped frame is from Gina Marie Designs, and I made my own shaker mix using sequins from my stash.

I'm also joining Kathy Racoosin's 30-day Colouring Challenge!  Today is the first day!

  14. Beautiful ombre colors on this card, Kitty. Fun shaker card. Some of the sequins look like bubbles. I love those. Isn't it exciting when a card comes together like this? Some are hard to part with.
    We live close to the ocean (cue the music to Jaws) and I don't want to see those sharks except on cards or the television. The sentiment cracks me up.
