A second card I´m sharing today with you is this Just Keep Swimming Card.
For my card layout I used wonderful sketch from Your Next Stamp, designed by Julie Elak.
Using a compass tool, I drew circulars on scraps of 4 different blue cardstock papers, cut them out and glued circles to a dark blue card panel according to the sketch. I used office paper puncher to make the smallest circles.
I used a super cute 'Keep Swimming' digital stamp (freebie) and 'Keep Swimming' digital sentiment (freebie) from The Alley Way Stamps (TAWS).
I printed a fish and sentiment on a scrap of white cardstock paper. I colored fish in watercoloring technique using only one color (Tim Holtz´s Distressed Ink Mustard Seed), water and brush, fussy cut it, glued some foam behind fish and placed it on the panel.
