Club Scrap "Lakes" kit Blog Hop


Good morning bloggers!!  Have you seen Club Scraps' new Lakes kit?  It is AMAZING!!  I totally LOVE this kit!  This will be just the best for making guy cards and layouts - and I have lots of guys in my life, so it is going to just perfect for us!!

So this month I wanted to create a tiled background with border, kinda like mimicking one of the ginormous fish tanks at one of them big box hunting fishing camping etc etc stores.  I can't say this was quick and easy this month, but I really like how it turned out.
Watercolor paper
Watercolor pans
ink pads
Pearl pen

1.  Start with white card front.  Cut strips of teal cardstock 1/2 inch wide.  You will need to cut mitered corners and ink all the edges.  Cut them at various lengths and adhere as shown:
2.  Cut a bunch of 1x1 and 1/2x1/2 inch squares of light green cardstock. 

 3. Ink edges of squares.  Adhere inside the border.

4.  On a separate piece of white cardstock, stamp the images of 3 "Fish" images (ClubScrap).  Using the watercolor paint palette and paint in the fish images.  Let dry.
5.  Cut out the fish and adhere to the cardfront.  Using the pearl pen, add some dots at each of the increments in the frame.
Well I hope this inspires you to get crafty and make something fun!  Thanks for visiting my blog during the Club Scrap Blog Hop!!
