huge thanks

Think Jaws
cardstock:  neenah, vellum  stamps:  paper smooches surf and turf/briny blue  ink:  memento tuxedo, copics RV14, RV17, V09, V15, Y19, Y38, R14 & R46  other:  MME washi, Freckled Fawn washi, MME enamel dots.
A big thanks to Katie Brooks for letting me borrow a couple Paper Smooches sets:

I had the idea of doing a fish bowl and it ended up a jaws theme, compliments of my boy!

The ‘teeth’ washi:

I used the washi stacked on the top, fussy cut out the ‘teeth’.

I envisioned water in the shark’s mouth so the waves are

This is actually a petite card at about 3.5 inches in diameter so I used the ‘huge thanks’ sentiment.

Katie and I were exchanging shark jokes:

What kind of shark is always gambling?

What do yuppie sharks like to drink?

This was inspired by

and this makes it 3 Gallery Idol entries for me.  Check out #1 & #2.

Crossing my fingers but here’s the thing…the washi challenge really pushed me to try to think outside the box, specifically for this card.  The process was fun and I used some well hoarded supplies♡
