Gator in the Ocean

     Another Friday so another challenge is starting at QKR Stampede.  Our theme this week is "By the Seaside"  and we want to see projects with images of oceans, beaches, sand, sandcastles, seashells -- you decide what to use that meets the theme and then come show us your creations.

     I got a bit silly and used two cute QKR images:  Digi 5602 "Floating Gator" and Digi 6702 "Wondering" and then added my own sentiment.


     I did a really simple design, coloring the images with my ProMarkers, then cutting them and placing them in appropriate positions on scrap strips of blue dp which I had added to the card front as background.  I used the strip with the sentiment as a divider to differentiate the above and below parts of the ocean.

     I had already wrapped the ribbon around the card front and I tied the bow separately, adding the anchor charm before attaching the bow.

     I love the expression on the face of the octopus!  He really does seem to be wondering about the gator, doesn't he?

  1. Such a cute card with the octopus thinking hard about the gator - your colors are darling - did you know that gators, crocs, and rattle snakes all travel along the Florida coast? Obviously they don't bother humans because you never hear about it, but they are there, out in the salt water, doing their thing - so your card is entirely appropriate! LOL Love your riddles within your cards, and the fun antics of your characters, Connie! hugs, de
