Waving Hello

Greetings friends, 

Before diving into the card (pun intended).  I have some administrative news.  As many of you know there is a "follow me by email" feature on this blog (look to the right).  Blogger changed how this feature works.  I did my best to transfer all emails to the new program.  However, things are never easy. You may need to re-subscribe to the blog.  It is the easiest fix to the problem.  Let me know if you have questions or have problems.   Thank you all for following along! 

CARD INFO:  Let's Dive in!

Making "Hello" cards are some of my favorites.  They are nice to have on hand for the things that pop up.

I wish the camera picked up the details in the background of this card better.  The blue "water" was created using a variety of colored spray inks.  I used a light, medium, and dark blue, silver, purple, and  green spray to create a background panel.  The color moves on the paper, blending together to create a unique panel.  As a bonus the inks have a fine glitter mixed in.  When the panel dries it has a subtle shine. I used snow drift die to cut the blue and a white panel.  Even though it is meant for snow drifts, I thought it added to the watery feel of the card. I inlaid the blue panels into the white frame.  The rest of this card was really simple.  I put this super cute snorkeling bear in the scene.
