Today is the 10th day I am participating in The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge! I have found it to be great motivation to work on my coloring. Have you had a chance to play along?

For this card, I used a We R Memory Stamp Press. It comes with a platform and a plexi sheet to place your stamps on. You can buy extra plexi sheets. Which is what I do. I actually have 2 Stamp Presses and an extra plexi sheet. I took the party hats from one stamp set. But there are only 2 hats. So I started out by attaching the shark stamp onto one of the plexi sheets. Then I put the hats on top of that, and attached them onto another plexi sheet. I did that a couple of times until the party hats were stamped onto a good number of the sharks. For each party hat, I created a paper mask, which was fussy cut. I placed the paper masks on top of the hats and then I stamped the sharks. The group of sharks is an individual stamp.

As for the coloring. The hats were colored with alcohol marker. While the sharks were colored with pencils. Then I blended the sharks out using a Fantastix and baby oil. If you would like to see how I did that please visit here.
