The new AAA Birthday Challenge is: use a stencil.
So I used two haha....One round one to mask off an area and on top the wavy stencil from Simon Says Stamp.
The image and sentiment are from Craftin Desert Divas (waves) and I stamped the image with My Favorite Things Extreme Black and the sentiment with Versafine Clair ink.
Coloured the image with Nuvo Alcohol markers and cut it out, then mounted it with foamtape.
For the cardbase I masked of the circle with
a diy stencil (acetate with a hole basically),laid the waves stencil on top and applied Distress Oxides in Mermaid lagoon and Tumbled glass. Sprayed it with Shimmer Spritz in the Frost version for some shimmer as if the sun is shining on the water. Not sure you can tell on the photo.
Adhered my crocodile or alligator on top.
