huge thanks





2 words:

Think Jaws

cardstock:  neenah, vellum  stamps:  paper smooches surf and turf/briny blue  ink:  memento tuxedo, copics RV14, RV17, V09, V15, Y19, Y38, R14 & R46  other:  MME washi, Freckled Fawn washi, MME enamel dots.

A big thanks to Katie Brooks for letting me borrow a couple Paper Smooches sets:


I had the idea of doing a fish bowl and it ended up a jaws theme, compliments of my boy!

The 'teeth' washi:



I used the washi stacked on the top, fussy cut out the 'teeth'.

I envisioned water in the shark's mouth so the waves are



This is actually a petite card at about 3.5 inches in diameter so I used the 'huge thanks' sentiment.

Katie and I were exchanging shark jokes:

What kind of shark is always gambling? A CARDSHARK

What do yuppie sharks like to drink? jaw-va

This was inspired by



and this makes it 3 Gallery Idol entries for me.  Check out #1 & #2.

Crossing my fingers but here's the thing...the washi challenge really pushed me to try to think outside the box, specifically for this card.  The process was fun and I used some well hoarded supplies♡

  2. Way to go with the Gallery Idol entries. I never bother with those as I always feel out of my league.
    Love the teeth made with washi tape. I didn't know you were that funny with the jokes.
