Water You Up To?

Happy Monday! I love having Monday's off. It's been my saving grace in getting things done around the house. This morning I took the time to make a card. I have to get some of my progressive challenges out of the way before day camp starts. So my card today is for DeeDee's Progressive challenge. The image this month is an adorable little duck named Daniel (my son's name) so I made this card to send to my Daniel.


The image and sentiment are from DeeDee's stamp set called Diver Daniel. I used the pre-colored image from the set because I thought it would stand out nicely from my water colored background. I bought a new set of watercolors and this is my first attempt using them. I thought it turned out nicely. The sentiment I used distress ink to color: Mermaid Lagoon and Peacock Feathers. I stamped some seaweed from a Gina K stamp set called Best Fishes (retired) at the bottom of the card. My Favorite Things has a Summer School and today is all about the rule of thirds. I watched the video and then made a template from vellum like the one in the video. It helped me a lot in making this card. So I'm really excited about this summer school. Not sure how much time I'll get to participate with day camp coming up next week. Check it out though. It's lots of fun!
I am entering these challenges:

Thanks for stopping by. I hope to have some time to craft in the next few days but day camp will have to take precedence. Take care if I don;t check back in. I'll will certainly be back after day camp. Have a great week!

Oh the "water" looks so cool...you did a great job. Like the big banner to make the sentiment stand out. Thanks for playing in the Digi of the Month challenge at Deedee's Digis.

Diver Daniel is just cute as he can be on your fab watercolored background. He really looks like he is underwater - doing his scuba thing. Great way to use this delightful digi. Don't you just love the pre-colored images? TFS & good luck with the Scout camp. Hope it's not so hot up your way as it is in SC. TFS &Hugs
