#143 Water

Lin is hosting today and wants to see your projects with water depicted on them. So you might choose rain, a lake or the ocean either beneath the waves or on top, maybe even a bath.

Here is how the team interpreted Lin's theme

Water 1
I used a lovely Art Doll from Courtenay Designs in my piece. Details on my blog


I used a rubber stamp I've had for some time, and coloured the image with Promarkers. I created the background and sentiment in Photoshop Elements and matted the result on some purple card, finishing with a little ribbon.
I have used a stamp from Joanna Sheen's favourite flowers collection and coloured it using Promarkers. I then matted it onto mirri card.

Super quick and easy from me using Kaisercraft Hello Sunshine range.

I have used an Inkylicious Stamp Set - Craft a Scene -Boating
with Pan Pastels.

I chose a LOTV topper 'Bubble Bath' for this card which I made for my youngest daughter and her partner. They recently moved into their new pub, hence the combination of Good Luck and New Home.

For my card I chose an Under The Sea theme. I have used some old stamps from Creative Expressions and papers by Joy Crafts to create my card.

I've gone for something quite different this time - a completely digital scrapbook layout using Serif Craft Artist. I love paddleboarding, and had just started to learn how to windsurf - so thought I would create a layout using some of my photos!!

I have used an image from CUP, Noah's Ark

I love being around water, I find it so soothing, so I decided to something soft and calm to remind me of the feeling I get when I am near water or when I think about water. All of the embellishments are made out of crafter's clay and the layers are all coloured using DecoArt paints.

I used one of my first ever stamps for this challenge, which features a mermaid (can't get more water themed than that!) from the now sadly closed Ladybug Crafts Ink.  I've kept the design quite simple with a blue/green colour scheme, bubbles (dots!), watery paper and iridescent ribbon.

My card was made using a photo library image of a diver for my nephew's birthday as that's his main hobby now, and I used clarity letterbox stamps for the sentiment.
