Hambo Stamps Snorkel Boy


My card today is for the Hambo Hoedown, it's my first card as a Hambo Stamps Bacon Bit!
The challenge today: It's a sparkling sea adventure for SNORKEL BOY! Glitter, Stickles, atyou Spica pens, glittery embossing powders, etc. - It's all about the SPARKLE as we dive into the depths of the sea.

BONUS OINKS for those that use one of the Father's Day sentiments and still have a masculine card with sparkle!

I colored Snorkel Boy with Copic markers B12, B0000, G0000, BG0000, Y13, Y15, R24, R27, R20, YR61, YR65, YR68, E81, E84, E70, E71, E74, E000, E00, E11.  I used Stickles Ice and Glossy Accents on my card in the bubbles, extra bubbles and his face mask as well as fish fins.  I wish my sparkle showed up better though! 

The layout for my card is the Sweet Stop Sketch challenge #160.  I made my own paper using Copic X Press It, Isoprophyl Alcohol and B12 Copic refill then dropping drops of Copic colorless blender on the paper after the ink was dry.  I was going for the ric rac looking like sea weed but I'm not so sure I "feel it".  I think that's just the way it is when you are making something really important instead of just playing in a challengeThe ric rack is a Papertrey Ink die and the button is a Cheery Lynn Designs die.

I hope you'll join us over at the Hambo Hoedown this week and play along.  Be sure to stop by and see all the fabulous design team creations using Snorkel Boy!
