Dark Shadows
Bubbly Depths SVG Cutz Card by Leigh
My Bubbly Depths Blog Hop finale inspiration for you today is a FIN-tastic make featuring my Summer 2021 Chapter 1 release, the Bubbly Depths Collection🦈
I've been entranced by sharks, especially Great Whites, ever since I saw Jaws at the cinema when I was 5 years old.  I actually only saw the opening attack scene and got to experience the iconic music and then I was outta there but that was all it took...I was hooked on sharks...terrified to go in the ocean forevermore... but still forever mesmerized by the gorgeous creatures!  I finally saw the whole movie about 5 years later and loved it🦈
So my jaw-some finale make is all about the Sharkies!
Plus Shark Week kicks off on July 11th...grab the popcorn...Jaws marathon here I come🦈

I used all 5 layers with bubbles from the Bubbly Depths Rectangle Tunnel SVG Cutz set to create my 3D tunnel scene.  4 layers are cut from shades of blue cardstock and 5th and top layer from black.  I like to use 80lb cardstock for most of my SVG cutting, especially for the more delicate cuts like the netting!
Around the perimeter of the top layer I wrote with a metallic silver gel pen...
disconcertingly appear out of nowwhere...
approaching silently from deep below...
rapidly swimming...
circling ever tighter...
Dark Shadows moving ever closer.

Then filled the depths with a shiver of circling sharks and their pilot fish from the Bubbly Depths Ocean Life SVG Cutz set all cut from black cardstock.  There’s a few words to describe a group of sharks but “shiver” really sets the mood!  I also added deep blue metallic eyelash fibers around the outer edge to enhance the organic feel of movement.
I glued the sharks to the different concentric layers to further enhance the 3D tunnel effect.  I used the silver gel pen to add some highlight glints to the sharks and fish and also added some distressed metallic silver ink to 2 of them so they stand out nicely from the black top layer.

The dark shadows are still rising to the surface but the Bubbly Depths Netting SVG Cutz "shark net" has let one through!
NOW might be a good time to GET OUT OF THE WATER!!!!
