free hugs!

because who doesn't love free hugs?! lol!

today there is a new Freshly Made Sketches challenge up! and bonus - Newton's Nook Designs is the sponsor this time!
check out the sketch:

ok, so at first, i was totally stumped when i saw this! but then, i thought, i can do basically anything with this!
and then it was fun time!

i used the adorable shark from Shark Bites and that super fun sentiment! ha ha! it cracks me up!

i colored in the image with copics and then popped it up over an altered patterned paper  piece! i stamped those shark images in Evergreen Bough Distress ink and then added some shading along the sides. then i dropped some water on it to make the color run a little.

i stamped the waves and cut it out so that the shark fins could stick out on the card base! fun!

be sure to play along for your chance to win some Newton's Nook bucks!
