House Mouse & Friends Challenge #99 Make A Splash


I saw this challenge over at House Mouse & Friends, and decided to look through my stash of HM stamps to see which had water.  I found this HUGE stamp called Pool Party # 229 and dated 1998.  Since the challenge is called "Make A Splash", I thought I would give it a whirl. 


I really could not add many embellishments due to it's size, but I did my best.  My coloring was done with Copic markers.  I added Diamond Stickles to the water and bubbles for sparkle.  Ribbon was too wide, so I went with silver cording for my bow.  Some turquoise DewDrops finish it off.  I used kraft card stock with a turquoise dp.  My sentiment is from Clear Dollar.

That is it for now!  Have a crafty, inky day!
