Hello chum and welcome to Shark Week 2023 here on my website! I've got some jawsome cards to share with you over the next few days featuring a variety of shark themed products, so let's get swimming. . . if you dare! : )
This card features the Snark Attack stamp set from Whimsy Stamps and an aqua alcohol ink background amidst the words "duh nuh" (aka the theme music from "Jaws.")
*All supplies are linked at the end of this post for you convenience.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I cut a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of the same white cardstock with an oval shaped die cut hole in the middle. On a separate sheet of 5" x 3 1/2" Yupo paper, I created an alcohol ink smooshed background with Turquoise alcohol ink from Tim Holtz. Once the background dried, I adhered it behind the die cut oval.
Using the Bold ABC letter dies from Whimsy Stamps, I die cut the letter "DUH NUH" from teal cardstock. I die cut the letters three times each in order for me to stack them for dimension (in lieu of foam adhesive). I adhered the letters across the center of the card. I stamped the two sharks in Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored them using Copic Markers. I added a layer of Crystal Effects over the sharks to give the appearance they were wet or shiny. I then adhered the sharks to the card using 3M foam adhesive for dimension. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment "tourist season is my favorite" in Memento Tuxedo black ink on thin strips of white cardstock. I adhered the sentiment strip (after cutting it in half to fit) to the lower right side of the card with foam adhesive.
I hope you'll come back tomorrow for another shark card in honor or Shark Week 2023!
