Saw the new challenge on the City Crafters' Blog and was inspired to make this card.

Fintastic "Tank You"

Sharing a card with an ocean/water theme.
Bit of yellow water color in the back with blue splatters
I used 3 different distress inks to make the waves and
generously covered them in glossy accents.

CIC #364: Lawn Fawn Sunflowers

I needed a mail-friendly birthday card and was inspired by the picture from

I used an older  Lawn Fawn set.
I used the masking technique to layer the flowers.
I colored them with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.

Be a Little Shellfish

Finally out for the summer and hoping to get a little crafty a little more often!
Played with my Lawn Fawn circle frames and new shellfish set to make a
little shaker card.

I water colored the background and added darker paint splatters
as well as drops of glossy accents for a wet look.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Inspired by the ocean/whale and the blues
I think the blue colors make this card appropriate for a man!
Thanks for visiting.
I am READY for some craft time this summer!
