Grandma Shark Do Do Do Do Do Do

Episode 45 of “Why Did I Buy This?” featured decorative masks. Masks are inexpensive and easy to create beautiful, textured backgrounds! If you missed the episode, you can catch the replay on my facebook page here:

I wanted to share how to use this product, as Stampin’ Up! has revealed that March’s Paper Pumpkin kit will have a BONUS product in it (yay!) and they are a set of exclusive masks. If you’d like to receive this special kit that includes all of the precept supplies, stamps, ink and embellishments for the featured projects, be sure to have your order in before March 10 (while supplies last). Specialty Paper Pumpkins tend to sell out so be sure to order early to reserve your kit!

I really love the effect of blending brushes and masks together. To make this fun card, I used my blending brushes to add extra depth to the Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper. Then I layered a mask and used Whisper White Craft Ink to create the effect of bubbles.

I used my Chalk Marker (one of my new/old obsessions) to create the little bubbles in the background.

The Shark Frenzy Bundle from the Spring Catalogue completes the underwater look with all of the fun extras!

I bet the recipient of this card won’t be able to read it and not sing along!
