A Dip in the Ocean...Inkspirational Challenge #114~Word Prompt: Dip, Simon Says Wednesday Challenge~Anything Goes, Get Creative Challenge #44~Lots of Blue, Words 2 Craft By #31~Just Keep Swimming

Hello,

Another two weeks has whizzed by (wait a minute...the entire month has whizzed by!) and it's time for my amazing DT and I to welcome you to Inkspirational Challenge #114~Word Prompt: Dip


Dip...yep, that's right. Dip. I won't bore you with a discussion of how many interpretations crossed my mind ( including thinking about some of the 'dips' I've met in my travels *grin*), but since I didn't have chip-and-dip images, or fancy dance move images, or "dipping below something" ideas, I went with what stuck in my mind from the first time I saw the prompt: a "dip" in the ocean. Couldn't get beyond it...so, I heeded the call.  

Yes, my Hero Arts Layered Seahorse set has received several play dates of late, but...I love it! Hope you'll bear with just one more little creation...


A seahorse shaker that makes me smile and yes, my husband has given it a shake-a-roo and has pronounced it in 'fine working order'. As I mentioned previously, he really 'does' have a thing for shaker cards...tee hee!

For more inspiration, please visit the Inkspirational gals to see how they 'dipped' into this challenge:


Your turn!  
Looking forward to seeing your dip-themed projects in the gallery!

Also dipping over to: (okay, okay...I'll stop it...)





So glad you spent part of your day with me; your visit brings me immense joy!

  4. Carol, What a gorgeous shaker card... just so pretty! And, it's easy to see why you've fallen for this Hero Arts Seahorse -- especially when you ink it up so beautifully. Thanks so much for joining us again for our Just Keep Swimming Challenge at Words 2 Craft By. :)

  5. This shaker is a masterpiece! I love the distressed look of your blue panel (water droplets on DI I presume) and the stamps you used are amazing and that window frame die, SO amazing... This card is brilliant!

  10. Love how you think pal! This is one cool interpretation of "Dip" (being an ice cream lover I likely would have chosen an chocolate dip cone!). I love the split panel and I love the shaker element. Cool colors too :)
