Wheeeee!

A dog in a parachute, landing in the waves?  Yup!  That's my card today.  I just love the look on the dog's face.  It's such a happy, live-life-to-the-fullest look and it makes me smile.

It's all about the word "splash" at Inkspirational Challenges:


And over at the Sketch Frenzy Friday Challenges, it's all about the sketch:


While over at the City Crafter Challenge Blog it's all about animal magic:


Okay, I could stop right there because that little face just enchants me.  But this isn't about that adorable face, it's about a card I've made and want to share.  It began with a stamp I couldn't resist.  And then I saw the card I wanted to make when I saw the challenges.  It's nice when everything comes together like that.

My base cardstock is Marina Mist followed by a layer of Cherry Cobbler and then the layer of Whisper White onto which I stamped everything.  The waves at the bottom of the stamped area were created first by tearing some Marina Mist  and then "capping" the waves with some of my Chalk Marker.  Colouring was easy with my Blendabilities and I did a bit of sponging on the sky using Soft Sky ink.  

I like the card just the way it turned out.


But it could also be made more occasion-specific by adding a banner if you wish:


Whichever way you finish it off, the card is simply fun and makes a person smile.  It's great when a card can do that, isn't it?

    1. Thank you so much, Shauna. I didn't want the waves to be too formed since they aren't like that in life. Tearing seemed the only way to go with some foam added, of course.
