Water, water, water....

Hi.  It's the first of the month and a new challenge over at Die Cut Divas.  This month our challenge is Water...(rain, lakes, ocean, streams, rivers, dark clouds full of water, glass of water, tears, just have some sort of water on the card.  And our wonderful sponsor for the month is one of my all time favourite companies. 

Hop over to our blog to find out a bit more about Altenew.  And they have kindly sponsored a prize gift card of $20.

As I've said I adore Altenew stamps and have A LOT!  For my card today, I've gone with a die cut flower -

Where's my water you ask?  Well, I add some clear Nuvo drops to look like rain drops on my rose.   Do you like how I've put my sentiment on an slight angle... Well that's my story and I'm sticking to it!
The rose is one that came free with a magazine.  I die cut it and the leaves from a light weight card stock and then used some Altenew inks to blend on them using my Picket Fence brushes.  The sentiment is a die cut from Catherine Pooler Designs - by CAS-ual Fridays for one of the earlier Stamp of Approval boxes.  The base is a lovely dark gray card and the Patterned Paper is from My Mind's Eye Black and Gray paper pack.  I edged the panel with some silver peelcraft sticker edging.

Do come and play along with us with your "water" related creations.

raindrops are a very clever way to add water to your lovely card, Dawn!!

I thought your sentiment wanted to cut across the stripes at a slight angle and didn't really catch on that i "might" not be on purpose. Love the card. Happy message for someone's birthday.
