Sunny Sunday !!!

Hi, the challenge over at Scrap Jacked is to be inspired by one of the designer's project.

This is the card I made, inspired by Deb's LO.

I was immediately attracted to the yellow well as the light, summer feel of it,  the movement  in her fish and water (waves), as well as her play with rope , and of course her doilies !
 Her theme is Fun with the Fishes;
mine is Wonder of the

I altered my background paper with acrylics, inks, crackle paint and  Bisque Liquid Pearls  ; a fabric doily was used as a mask. The main paper is from 7Dots , gorgeous and thick !!!

For the sentiment message I painted a hanging tag with acrylics and the same liquid pearls, applied crinkled saran wrap on top,  let dry, then inked (I call this the poor crafter's version of crackle paint !) ...

On the left side lots of papers were distressed, torn and inked; my version of
Deb's waves I

This was really fun; I haven't done a lift in ages...Thanks Deb for the summertime G.
