Mid month means it's time for a new challenge theme at
Dies R Us Challenge blog and our theme is
Lots of possibilities for this theme'

Design Team Member At

I started my card by first making some background panels
on watercolor paper using Ken Oliver Color Bursts,
then die cutting from those once they were dry.
I love the combo of the different colors.

three times and stacked one on the other to give it a bit more stability. 

Of course I had to add a few pearls as they just seemed to fit
my mermaid theme,
as we all know where pearls come from!

Below are all the links to the die I ahve used.

OH WOW! Those colors are AMAZING! I haven't played with my color burst for quite awhile now (hung up on oxide inks lol) but you've inspired me with these! Love the vibrant colors and the iridescent pearls are the perfect embellishment. GREAT summertime card my friend! Have a wonderful weekend ... I know you're extremely busy making memories with the grandkids!

Wow! This is totally amazing, Diane!! I've loved these Tutti dies since first sight. Holy cow, so gorgeous! Wouldn't it be nice to have an extended period of actual summer weather? We've had some sun, but it mostly comes with so much wind you can't stand to be out in it. Ugh!
