Starting School and Thinking of You

 There was a fun Mix-Ability Challenge over on Split Coast last Friday -  Drip, Drip, Drip -  to drip water over an inked or colored panel for your background.  I made two cards - a bright colorful one and a softer tone one.

First up is the colorful one - that I combined with the other Friday challenge on SCS - Free 4 All which was to use the primary colors of red, yellow and blue.

I made the background by sponging Ranger Distress inks over a white panel - then I dripped drops of water on the background using an eye dropper.  I didn't want the water to run, I wanted just drops on this one - so I patted a paper towel over the panel to absorb the water.

My 3 year old grandnephew, Landon, is going to start pre-school one day a week this month so I thought I'd send him this card.  I think he'll love seeing himself on the card - I hope he is just as happy his first day of school!  I cut out this picture of him and popped it up on the panel with foam tape.  I made the sentiment with my Brother P-Touch Label maker.
For my 2nd card - I again made a background by sponging a white panel with ink and then dripping water on it using an eye dropper.  This time I wanted the water to run as I was trying to make it look like this photo below.  This is a wall paper sold at Eskayel - a web store that was our inspiration for the IC challenge on Split Coast on Saturday.
And here's my card:
I cut the panel with Labels 18 Nestabilities.  The flowers are layered over the panel, some with foam tape. I used a beautiful flower set I just purchased, Fresh Cut Florals, and the coordinating dies from W Plus 9
I love how this came out!
