Lookin Shark Challenge & Whimsy Release

It's challenge time again. My friends Alanna and Faye are challenging each other again. We each use  different coloring mediums but the same stamp sets. Make sure to visit their blogs to see their fabulous creations! 
So this time we decided on the super cute Lookin' Sharp clear stamp set from Whimsy's newest release designed by Dustin Pike. I am using pencils today with a little twist to it. 

I colored this fella with Caran D'ache Pablo pencils. This time I added a little twist to my pencil coloring by laying down the lightest color with alcohol markers. Just one color flat, no shading, nothing. Then I colored the image as I normally would with pencils. I used mixed media paper and a hybrid ink. I love this method working on a layer of base color. It also speeds up the coloring process a bit too and that is a nice advantage as pencil coloring can really be time consuming.

Yep, it's another shaker card 😂. Looks like I can't get enough of these lately. It's just such a nice effect to add a shaker element to a card. These shark stamps have matching outline dies as well (see all product links below). To create the background I used the new Slimline Taffy papers. These are slimline sized but are versatile and can be used on any card style. I created the word Jawsome out of the Awesome word die and the letter J from the cutie ABC set. I die cut all the word elements from pink glitter paper that matches the background paper. Then I removed the letter e from the word awesome and added the letter J and there you go: Jawsome 👍
