Make A Splash -Fantabulous Cricut Challenge

Hello everyone, I'm so glad you joined me today.
Each monday brings two great challenges, one from Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog and My Craft Spot to see my post for the My Craft Spot challenge please click -HERE.

Today's challenge for Fantabulous Cricut is...
Make a Splash
Create a project with a water theme (pool, beach, water park etc.)

I used Life's a Beach Cricut cartidge along with Sammy the Seal he's a digi image, more details about him below.
Our sponsor at FCCB this week is The Paper Nest

They have generously given the design team members a few of their adorable digital images to create with.  I'm using Circus Seal Sammy, he can be found -HERE. Sammy is super cute and just had to go to the beach to play today!

It's been a while since I've picked up my copic markers, oh and it felt so good to color again. The colors I used are C1, C3 & C5 for the seal, the ball and fluffy collar... yellows, Y00, Y13 & Y18, reds R22, R24 & R29.
I still feel like an amateur and continue learning different copic coloring techniques.
For my scene at the beach I used the Life's a Beach cricut cartridge, the waves are on page 77 of the handbook and were cut at 1 1/2", the beach chair on pg. 81 cut at 2 1/4" and the seagulls on pg. 79 cut at 1 1/2".
 My life preserve is cut from the Tiny Doilies metal dies I stamped the words using the Stampin' Around Summer stamp set, the twine is Cherry Red.  All these items can be purchased from My Craft Spot store -HERE
I added a bit of inking on the beach chair using Tim Holtz Vintage Photo, the edge of the card is inked using Tea Die ink. Then just added a few black dots on the sand.
 Inside of my card
Now head over to FCCB and take a look at the inspiring projects made by the FCCB design team -HERE and join us for this weeks challenge Make a Splash.  
Also remember to go check out the products in The Paper Nest store -HERE.
