Splish Splash

Hello again! Time for a brand new Challenge at Card Makin' Mamas and the theme this fortnight is Splish, Splash quite apt for us in the UK with all the rain we've had so far this year.  We want to see your cards made using your Mists, Sprays, Paints, etc. Now this was way out of my comfort zone I'll tell you.  Here is my card:

The image is Froggy Stack by High Hopes Stamps coloured with my Copics.  I cut the image out with Dienamics Pierced Rectangle Stax.  The Centura Pearl cardstock has been embossed for the background.  Paper is Nitwits and Coredinations.  The flower is Dienamics Plentiful Petal with their Mini Scallop Border.  For the label I used Go Kreate Die and flicked some Twinkling H2Os over it as I don't really do much with paints and sprays, the sentiment I did on my computer.  Twine and butterfly from my stash.  Here is another view:

Please head over to Card Makin' Mamas to check out the rest of the Mama inspiration!

Its an amazing world nowadays isn't it?  As I am writing this I have my I Pad in front of me and I am watching my nephew's graduation ceremony live from the U.S. Navy over 2000 miles away!

Let It Be was wonderful last night, we went for a meal at a Turkish restaurant first which was delish washed down with a couple of glasses of wine.  Home on the train, a great evening.  No I am going to have to get ready because I am going out with my friends for dinner and drinks tonight in Lytham.  Tomorrow night Dave and I are going out for a Greek meal with some friends.  I feel I will be wined and dined out by Sunday!

Thank you so much for looking, take care xx

What a fun card. Love that litlte stack of frogs! The green mist over the tag is a great touch...Like you I rarely use my sprays. My craft room has carpeting so I am always worried that I will get overspray on the carpet!

Your card is perfect for teh Two Peas in a Bucket Moodboard Challenge. I may see if I have any frog stamps as it would help fill the soft green requirement of the challenge!

Wonderful card and who ever gets this card will love it and have a big smile on their face.

Have fun in Lythm...we spent an afternoon there and DH longingly checked out the gold course. After we went to Filey we found out that relatives BIL could have got him on the course to play! Perhaps we will go back one day!
