I have always loved to read. I went to the bookstore a couple weeks ago and got a few new books. But, I learned something. New books = nothing else getting done. I just cannot put down a new book. Sigh. Not really a good thing.
Today's Card was difficult to make. I finally decided that it was because I don't spend my spare time at the beach...I spend it at the MALL! lol
I was inspired by the faboo Maren Benedict, who made THIS killer Card. I thought the concept was very different and fun. I wanted to put a twist on it, though. I decided a pinwheel Card would be a good way to express my Sentiment:
I used the Life is a Beach (LIAB) cart (which is a summer must have, btw) for the ca-ute shark. I needed something both cute and menacing and he completely fit the bill!
I used Wild Card for the sun, Zooballoo for the waves, Paper Doll Dress Up for the sand. Now, by turning the wheel, Sentiment TWO is revealed:
And, finally getting to the killer part, Sentiment THREE:
I lightly inked the waves in white. Also, it's a little hard to see in the pic, but I inked the shark teeth in white and "colored" them with a white gel pen. Then, I covered them with Diamond Glaze to make them stand out a little more.
The "sand" is actually Ultra Fine Flower Soft, called, appropriately enough, 'Sand'. lol
The Card itself is a cut from Wild Card, and I have used it before. However, this time, I decided I would create my own, CDS. I don't know why I wanted to reinvent the wheel.
Ok, that's it...have a killer day!
