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?

My first week as a Guest Designer at the House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge and the theme this week is Sunny Days.

I used this lovely image from the Happy Hoppers range and coloured it with my Copic markers, adding some Glossy Accents to the rubber ring, the drink and the duck

I used my favourite aqua base card for my matting and layering and some pretty papers I got free in a magazine a few years ago (Yes I DID say YEARS!!! I do like to drool over my papers for an awfully long time before I actually get around to using them ;oD). Next I die cut some waves and a bright orange sun before adding my sentiment. Hope you like it.

Why not drop by and see what the fantastic design team have done with our theme this week and maybe join in with the challenge at House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge. Go on! You know you want to...
