A Drop in the Bucket challenge has been set at AiFactory Challenges this week .So we’d love to see your water themed creations.You don’t need a AIFactory image to join in but there are some freebies if you’d like one of their images.You have until Wednesday 9th March 11:59 EST to upload your project.Stop by the challenge site to check out full details.Don’t forget to take a look at the wonderful DT creations while you’re there!

I’ve used Ella Under the Sea – Digital Stamp Image 2 for my card.The first thing that popped into my head when I saw this image was this scene.So I couldn’t help but go with it.I’ve flipped one image and made it smaller.Both have had their hair and skin coloured with Promarkers and Copic Atyou Spica pens have been used everywhere else.Although the glitter doesn’t show too much in the pic.I’ve added pearls in their hair using Liquid Pearls.The base card has been made from a sheet of white card punched with a Martha Stewart set.It was then the perfect size to attach to a 5″ x 7″ card. I used the border punch to create the waves.The rock and sand were hand cut and the sun was made using Nestabilities.The banner was made by cutting a strip of card,stamped with words from a Christmas set (!), and then snipping into the end.The pearl dangling from the edge is actually from a bra I bought.Don’t worry I cut it off BEFORE I wore it as I thought it was too bulky and would show through my clothes!!

    A fantastic card Lisa, I’m glad you entered it into our Challenge even though the Linky thing is playing up. The dimension you have designed into your looks fabulous and I love all the papers. Ella and her sister look fantastic surfing the waves.
