Make My Monday - On the Water

 Hello friends.  We are starting a new challenge at Make My Monday and the theme is On the Water chosen by Dawn.

I used this loon image from a retired SU set Moon Lake.  I love the images in this set and couldn't part with it.  It is great for masculine cards.  I colored the image with SU Blends and blended Pool Party ink for the sky section.  I die cut the image with a stitched oval die and mounted it on a Lost Lagoon oval die cut.  The pattern paper is also old and matched the Lost Lagoon perfectly.   I cut a 1-1/4" slit in the center of the panel and folded it from the corner to the fold (I think it is called a collar fold).  I saw several cards with this fold on Pinterest and wanted to give it a try.  I mounted this on a white panel and stamped the sentiment from SU Artistically Inked set.  I added a 3/8" strip of the pattern paper before mounting the image with foam tape.  This is all mounted to a Lost Lagoon card base.  I am pleased with the final result.

Be sure the check out all the great cards by the team over at Make My Monday.  I hope you will join in our fun challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,
