Scuba Thank You

I took my Trex unit Scuba Diving this week. We had a fabulous time, a lot of it due to our fabulous instructor. I decided I needed to send her a Thank You card to tell her how much we appreciated her knowledge and skills she shared with us. I knew right away that I need to use the Scuba Diving Changito. Unfortunately I didn't have him in my stash, no worries I made a few calls and my friend Shanna (The Banana Stamper) came to the rescue. My friend Krista (Live....Laugh... Scrap)
didn't have the Scuba Changito but She did have a super cute snorkelling one, so I decided to use him on the inside. I was able to enter my card in a few challenges!! One atMojo Monday, one at Paper Sundaes, and another at the ABC Challenge.

Card Formula:
The design of the card came from the sketch at Mojo Mondays. Loved the sketch I made a few changes by adding a sentiment and placing my image over the ribbons rather then under them. At Paper Sundaes they challenges everyone to due some distressing. I distressed the edge of the patter paper with a distressing tool from Tonic Studios. I like the look as it kind of made the paper look like the "white cap" of a wave. The paper I used also had a distressed look built into it.I also distressed my white paper with some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. I used the Sea Glass Mist and the "New" Waterfall Mist. I don't know if it really counts as distressing or not, but I thought it was worth a try. At ABC Challenge they challenge us to only use one sheet of Pattern Paper. My wave paper and distressed paper came from the same sheet of paper from Around the Block. It was a two sided piece of paper. I colored my Monkeys with my Copic markers seen below. I also added a little Liquid Glass to his mask so that it gave the illusion of the plastic lens. I used some scraps of ribbon I had laying around from other projects. The sentiment is a rub on from Karen Foster and the 3 Dots in the corner are Bella Bling. I used my small hole punch to punch out four small circles to place in the four corners of my image. On the inside of the card I stamped the Changito on my pattern paper and then paper pieced the coloured parts onto him.



  1. What a beautiful card - outside and in! Nice to see all the details - so often I neglect that element of blogging. Thank you for joining us this week at Paper Sundaes - hope to see you again next week!

  2. How fun! I especially like how you finished the inside! You beat me to making a card with this Changito!
