The LEAD of this challenge will be invited to be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

For my card I started with some watercolor paper, PTI Sun & Surf Stencils.  I used Rangers Textured Paste Transparent Gloss and Rangers Palette Knife set to smooth the paste over the stencil.   I let it dry.  I then mixed Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Evergreen Bough, and Blueprint Sketch Distress Inks    to create the water resist wave background.  I used Rangers Distress Sprayer by Tim Holtz to add some water splotches. 

Once I got the background the way I wanted, I set it aside to dry.   I die cut, white embossed, and colored the whale from PTI Keep Swimming stamp and die setI popped him up using some foam tape.  I positioned him so he looks like he is jumping out of the water.  I added a white emboss sentiment to the bottom corner using the same set.  I flicked some blueprint sketch ink onto the card for some added dimension and texture.  I finished my card with a few clear sequins. 

Make sure you visit each of the designers' blogs 
for more inspiration!

I am also playing along with Retro Sketch and The Paper Players.
