Time to celebrate...


I've got a fun slimline card to share today using some more of
Charmed by the Sea cuties from Purple Onion Designs. On this slimline scene I stamped up Skeeter, the penguin who is riding around on his wave runner. Not only that, but I wanted him to be racing a pod of playful dolphins. The only problem was, that the Flipper stamp was facing the opposite direction. So I had to grab a mirror stamp and flip Flipper, LOL! Once everyone was stamped into place, all that was left to do was color. I wanted everything to be bright and happy like a summer day. I also added some splashing water around the dolphins and at the back of the wave runner to enhance the sense of motion in the scene. And of course I grabbed another one of the fantastic Seaside Sentiments for the perfect finishing touch. :)
