HMFMC 170 - SPLISH SPLASH (anything to do with water)

Tracy has chosen our theme and as soon as I saw what this week's challenge at HMFMC was going to be I knew what I was going to do. I absolutely LOVE the image I've used and I think it's perfect for Thinking of You cards and the like. I can't seem to get out of my duck egg blue phase so apologies for that. It looks so cool with a touch of black and white.

Here is my card


Quite a lot going on, I know, but it just kind of grew if you know what I mean ;oD

As usual, I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured it in with my Copic Markers and Prismacolour Pencils. It hasn't come out too well in the photograph but I lifted the raindrops with another crafty staple of mine, Glossy Accents


The dies and sentiment on the front of the card are by Sizzix and the gorgeous butterflies are by Clearly Besotted. More from Clearly Besotted on the inside of the card. My backing paper is a favourite by Basic Grey.


We'd love it if you dropped by to see what the DT have put together to whet your appetite. Why not join in with the challenge and take a chance on winning one of the amazing prizes on offer. What have you got to lose?
