'Pond'

Good Evening,

With tonight's card you might need to think outside the box .  This week the cue card over at CASology is 'Pond'.  Now I don't have anything in my craft stash that makes you instantly think of a pond so I went with colours instead.


To create my 'pond' colours in the back ground I used 4 shades of ProMarkers blended together.  I used my Memory Box die to represent vegetation round a pond.  I told you to think outside the box!

Might have another bash at this challenge during the week if I think of something better but this will need to do for the moment.  I got some new Waltzing Mouse stamps in the post today, so off to have a play about with them.

Thanks for visiting
