You are Jaws-ome..Shark week card, with video

July 22nd marks the start of the 30th  anniversary of Shark Week on Discovery.

I used a set from 2016 by Mary Radher, it's called Suzy 5 and it's still available here and there on Dutch webshops, the Cheapest I found was here. it doesn't say how many are left.

I loved the Craftin Desert Diva one, called Jawsome, which gave me the idea to make my own sentiment. I just placed an order with them and well to get just one more set, it's just too expensive, but you might liek to use it, you can find it here. I didn't remember the sentiment exactly, but the Jaws in it was key, it's so cheesy but so funny.

I stamped the shark on the Crafter's Companion Marker paper and colored her with Spectrum Noir and Illustrator markers.

For the porthole I couldn't use the My Favorite Things one, it was just a bit tight. So I made my own with two nesting dies. I considered using a hand punch to make holes, but I thought I wouldn't be  exact enough to get the spacing and positioning right, so I left that idea.

I also went through my stash in search of images and sentiments, I had some previously colored images like the Pirate girl from MFT and the Bucket with fishes, but I only used the bucket in the end and the proportions weren't right.

I love how the shark is clapping here hand  and it could be like she's happy getting fed those fishes or it's  one of those evil hand gestures, you decide. The shark has eye lashes so I thing it's a she ...
Mounted the panel with foamtape and adhered the colored panel, then adhered the panel to the cardbase.

Added the little bucket and porthole.
