We have some wonderfully talented new team members at The Pixie Cottage be sure to stop by and see their creations. Our challenge today is Wet & Wild.

I used a little cricut dp paper for the background then embossed some Bazzill paper. Since my little Opal the Turtle is a water turtle I used circles to represent water bubbles. Is this little image the absolute cutest~~~Such a fun little scene on the shell and sweet face. She is water colored then cut out and foam dotted on, with her head pieced on top of that.The white background was cut with a Scalloped Oval and colored with chalks. Aqua pearls scattered around. A sheer white ribbon bow tied with a button. Finally I cut "bubbles" out of some acetate but they really didnt show so I added stitching around them. This is a close up so you can see them.

Entering Challenges:
Kreative Stempelfreundes: Dots
KB Cute Monday: Anything Goes
Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central: Make Simple
Make it Monday: Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly: Anything goes w/ button

You are right; your turtle is such a cutie. Your coloring is - as always - gorgeous. I love the texture and depth you added to your card. And the beautiful pearls go so well with the rest of your card.

Davi, this is one of the cutest turtles I've seen. And, what a good job you did making a card. Wow! Your stitching around those circles is quite spectacular. I need stitching lessons from you.
