One More

This is my second post for today.  I'm on a roll.

Ok.  I just couldn't help myself.  After I posted my ombre chevron cards, I had another idea for another color combination.

Blues = ocean waves + fish.

Tell me this isn't the cutest!

With some clever masking and omitting, I was able to stamp my sentiment from two different stamps.  The largest fish has glitter pen on its spots to fancy it up a bit.  And in retrospect, I would leave off the little splashes since I think they distract from the fish, but I had already done the card over once, and didn't want to do it over again.  I have lots of things to do today!

Supplies used:
Stamps - Stampendous Summer Scene, SU! Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper - PTI white and light blue, SU! Tempting Turquoise, Marina Mist, Pacific Point
Ink - Pacific Point, Tempting Turquoise, Marina Mist, Baja Breeze
Accessories - chevron punch, SAMJ, markers, Spica glittler pen

I'm sure I'm not the first one to discover ombre chevrons, but I am loving them!  What is your latest love in the paper crafting world?

LOVE! All of your chevron ombre cards are so clever and fun! And, I don't care if chevrons are trending out...I'll always adore them!

Adorable!!! I love the little splashes, though. They provide unity between the water and the jumping fishes!

I feel totally out of the loop with trends right now, even though I've been reading the magazines.
