manatees are my favorite animal and I just LOOOOVE these cute, floaty potatoes!
I stamped and colored the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers from the Manatee-rific stamp set, then used the coordinating dies to die cut them out!
I also used the bubbles and seaweed from the Scuba Newton stamp!

I used the Hills & Grass Stencil to create the wavy water! I used Distress Inks in Seedless Preserves, Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio. once they were all ink blended, I used the same colors and the packaging technique on top, to create the watery, watercolor look!

lastly, I heat embossed the sentiment in white, onto some black cardstock and cut it out in a banner shape!
be sure to check out the card on the Newton's Nook Designs blog!

I used the adorable You're Claw-some stamp set for my card!! I haven't met a kid yet who doesn't love these claw machine games, so I knew this would be perfect for a kids card!
I also used the little bear from the Critter Concert stamp set, because he looks like he's playing the game!
