WATER EVERYWHERE {DigiStamps4Joy}

{Digi Stamps 4 Joy DS4J: DT Project Challenge #91}

Another design team project for our  challenge over at DS4J's challenge blog.  The theme for Challenge No.91 is WATER EVERYWHERE.  Our lovely design team member, Berni is hosting this challenge. Thanks Berni for choosing this awesome theme for us.

Another centre step design.  I have used the following images from DigiStamps4Joy:
  1. Lake Malawi
  2. Aloe
Another centre step design.  The images have been coloured with H2O water colour pencils.  The design paper and buttons are from my stash. The sentiment is from Create with TLC and has been coloured with dry chalks.



Looking forward to seeing your creations. So hop on over to DS4J's challenge blog and link your Creations to Challenge #91.
