inky paws challenge reminder

today i have another card for the inky paws challenge over at the newton's nook blog
my card is over there too - go check it out and then get your ink on for a chance to win some newton's nook stamps!! :)

wait, you don't own any newton's nook stamps yet?! never fear! there are super cute digital freebies you can use to play along!

so...about the sketch...let's just say my card is a loose interpretation of it! i was more inspired by the sketch! ha ha! though, if you squint and look, you can see the sketch in my card! lol!

i used som really FUN dies for the waves of the ocean. the 2nd layer of the ocean is popped up for dimension. the cute little whale was colored with some copics and then i added the teeny tiny santa hat from the little fish in the same stamp set (sea-son's greetings! BEST and most unique christmas set out there! lol!) and i used that as the line of the waves and the whale for the line and bow of the sketch! :)

the sentiment was stamped onto some vellum. then i used various-sized circle punches that i had to create the bubbles. then i colored over each bubble with my wink of stella glitter pen! hello subtle shine! :)

so that's it!
now it's your turn to get your creative juices flowing and enter the inky paws challenge! you could win some newton's nook!!
