Celebrating Shark Week with Newton's Nook Designs!! =)

Pin It

Who's been ENJOYING SHARK WEEK!!?? We've been LOVING it!! So I thought what better way to CELEBRATE than by making a Card with Newton's Nook Designs featuring their AWESOME Shark Bites Stamp Set  and the coordinating Shark Bites Die Set!!
Here's a look at the Layered Scene Card I Created!!  =)
First, I wanted to Create a Layered Scene Card!! If you KNOW me you KNOW I LOVE LOVE LOVE to Create Layered Scene Cards and I had such a FUN Time making this one!! I Started by Stamping and Embossing my Shark Image onto some Distress Watercolor Paper!! Then I used a New NND Sea Borders Die Set to Create the Ocean Background!! I wanted to have an Underwater Scene so I used Distress Inks to Create my Ocean Background!! I Stamped the School of Fish Image using Chipped Sapphire and Peacock Feathers Distress Ink stamped ontop of one another then I covered them with Clearsnaps Clear Embossing Powder!! I used Distress Oxide Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain to create the Sandy Ocean floor Stamping some of the details in Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Ink!! I used the NND Tranquil Tides Stamp Set and the Coordinating NND Tranquil Tides Dies Set to Stamp and Emboss SEVERAL of the Images to Create my Under Water Scene!! I just LOVE LOVE LOVE how well these Stamp Sets work together!! =) I Splattered some Water onto my Inked Background for some Texture and added some Tonic Studios Aqua Sparkle Pen Spaltters to make the Ocean Shimmer!! SQUEAL!! I just LOVE how it turned out and hope it INSPIRES you to create a Card for Shark Week!!

I'm also playing along with the
