CES Challenges #48 ~ Water It!...


Hellooo! I'm back with my CES Challenges DT card! 
(Please scroll down for my 'A Gem Of A Challenge' DT post.)

So Caroline has chosen a fab theme for us this week....

''WATER IT''


I used the fabulous 'Molly' from DigiStamp Boutique. She is part of the 'Molly & Tom Summer Fun' set...and for a limited time only there is 20% off all digis!

I 'out of the boxed' her and coloured her using Copics & Stickles.


The very summery papers are Echo Park downloads printed onto Papermill linen card. But you can buy various Echo Park pads from Crafty Emma's Store, along with the Craftwork Cards Top Notch card blank, sentiment & card candi.

I also used;
Papermill dark brown card,
Lacey ovals Nestabilities (Pink Gem Designs),
Hydrangeas (WOC),
Wooden leaves (Quixotic Paperie),
Martha Stewart border punch,
Ribbon


Just a little tip to share before I go. To obtain perfect matting & laying when using these Craftwork Cards 'Top Notch' card blanks, I keep the front of one aside and use it as a template.....

Pop your mat underneath, square up and use a pencil to mark out each corner....

Carefully cut.....

Then repeat with the rest of your mats.....

Perfect matting and layering!

Many thanks for stopping by!
