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!

Beautiful card. The ocean looks amazing. Wish I had seen your card as a reference before I struggled with my mermaid card last week. But, you can bet I'm pinning your stunning example.

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.
