This week's challenge at Shopping Our Stash is April Showers. But since we are SO NICE, and our object is to use stash, we've stre-e-e-e-tched the theme to include April Showers or SNOW (think: Christmas Card Challenges). Actually, anything weather/water related will work: umbrella, seahorses, scuba, fishes, seascapes, ponds, oceans, snowflakes, snowfall, snowmen, rainy days, raincoats, rubber boots, rain clouds, clouds, rainbows, ducks (yep, ducks!) Now you have NO EXCUSE not to play!
I went with the fish option, if only to make myself open and use my Hero Arts Oceans of Joy fish set. Here's my card, then I'll explain:
For the grass, I used two colors of blue/green and also blended them:
Also, I originally had that white twine wrapped around the card and under the fish, but he looked strung-up, and we can't have that, so I moved it over to the diagonal.
Yep, I'm pretty pleased with how this came out. :)
Okay, now it's YOUR turn. Go into your s-crap room and dig out something water-related (frozen water or the liquid type), make a card, then link us up over at Shopping Our Stash so we can see what you've made!
Thanks for stopping by!
