Swimming Challenge

Hello!  I hope your summer is going great!
What says summer more than swimming?
And that is exactly what our theme is this week on 
For my swimming themed card, I have used
"Bubbles Background" (#58101) and
"Flying Girl Holder" (#21701) from
I stamped the Bubbles Background onto white card stock
and cut the top along one of the "waves"
I used the Flying Girl Holder to create a girl diving into the water.
Below is what the image actually looks like.

As you can see, I modified it a bit.
I masked off the girls dress and stamped the rest onto white card stock.
I then used a black pen to draw in her bathing suit.
I colored and fussy cut the girl and posed her as a diver
on the card with foam tape.
I think this would be an adorable invitation to a pool party.
Too bad I don't have a pool, eh?
I love to find different ways to use my stamps, to stretch my supplies and
create something a little different than what was intended.
Thanks for coming by today,
I hope you have learned something and been inspired.
I also hope you'll join in the fun of our 
swimming challenge this week.
All the particulars about the challenge are on the 

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
