Curtain Call and others

Hey Friends, I'm playing in some challenges today. When I saw the Curtain Call Challenge  Surf's Up inspiration photo I immediately thought of this Avery Elle Hello Chum stamp set because it had a surf board. I had two of these sharks colored up on my desk waiting to be used on a card. 

So I colored a surf board to match. Not knowing what I was going to do with the shark and surf board, I looked and found Case this Sketch 231

Following Jennifer Mcguire's tutorial, I inked up a square block with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, sprayed it with water, put in face down on a piece of water color paper and set something heavy on it for a while. The result was this great inked square which was the base of my focal point.

 I stamped the fishing rod and fish hook strategically on the square, and adhered my shark and surf board. A sentiment and waves stamp from the same set finished it off.
Thanks for visiting my blog!
