Just Keep Swimming

Hi, again!  Just popping in quick to share the cards I made for Kayne's swim instructors.  He went there 4 weeks ago being a little afraid of the water and left yesterday jumping in the water, going underwater, and swimming on his own (with the assistance of a bubble still, but HUGE progress).  I wanted to thank his two teachers so I colored up a couple of images and threw together cards.

The first features Little Swimmer from Saturated Canary.  She is colored with Copics and I applied Glossy Accents to her goggles and the puddle.  Sketch is Sketch Saturday (#322) and papers are My Mind's Eye - Surf's Up and Breaking Free.  I added some Lemondrop baker's twine, flowers, and bling.  The sentiment is from My Favorite Things, a set called Teacher's Pet.

The next card was made using Stamps by Aurora Wings' Merbaby image.  He is colored with Copics also.


The sketch is based on Sunday Sketch & Stamp (#214).  Papers are Graphic 45 By the Sea collection.  I added Eucalyptus Stickles to his tail.  Embellishments include flowers and some Martha Stewart punches.  The sentiment is the same as the previous card and is stamped on a Fishtail Flags Stax Die-namics (also MFT).  A sprinkling of pearl "bubbles" was the finishing touch here. 

Thanks again for visiting!  Have a lovely day!
