Splashdance!

What a feeling! I love how seals can walk on their front flippers and hop back and forth, side to side. What could be better than a tilt card for this little puddle jumper?

Can't you almost hear the little seal bark as he dances? ("AR! AR! AR! AR!")

I used this week's sketch and color challenge from Splitcoast (but I had to substitute Cool Caribbean, love this bucaroo blue with the Real red). The texture of the Spots and Dots CB folder are supposed to look like beaded rain drops and I added some page pebble accents, as well. The umbrella he's balancing, puddle, and rain drops on my vertical strip (which I colored in with my white gel pen) are all from Just So Hoppy. A greeting from the Hoppy set would be perfect for the inside, too. :)

Hey, check out my new poll! Please vote! :) ---------->

What you do with these stamps is just amazing. This is perfect with the seal. It's better than a real life seal.

I LOVE this card!!!! That seal is adorable!! I was one of the people that voted intimidated. I just don't think I'm good enough yet but I hope that one day I will be. I also am impatiently awaiting my latest Gina K order to come in so maybe inspiration will hit me then. :)
