Water, Water, Everywhere

Hello, Judy Woodland and Vicki Dutcher here, and it's time for  a new Mod Squad Challenge. It's April, bringing with it spring showers and the promise of new things growing.
The Challenge
Our challenge to you is to incorporate water in some way on your card. You may do this through water images such as raindrops, or use water-based mediums such as water colors. You get the idea.

This week our SPONSOR is the wonderful stamp company  


Kitchen Sink Stamps offers us a discount CODE: ModSquad15.
  These stamps are amazing. Most have a multi-stamp feature that lets you get great detail in your images using several colors. There is real dimension with a 3-D effect! And one of the best features of this stamp company is that there are color recipes for most of the multi-step stamps, so you don't have to guess what colors to use. There are even alternative colors if you don't have the inks that are suggested. Maria from Kitchen Sink Stamps is a member of our Mod Squad Challenge Facebook Group so feel free to say Hi or ask any questions.
$25 GIFT CERTIFICATE to the store. 
You can pick your own goodies and there are lots of choices!
Here is a sample for you:

These cute little images are from the Kitchen Sink stamp set  Multi-Step Rubber Ducky.  I just think they are the cutest things ever! Here I used a die from Simon Says Stamp, Ring Frames. The background was watercolored with Brushos and sprinkled with salt for a nice texture. To finish it off I attached some sparkly sequins I filled with Glossy Accents.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD White, Lemon Yellow and Ocean Mist Card Stock
Memento Inks in:
Rhubarb Stalk
Simon Says Stamp Ring Frame
Stash Sequins & Glossy Accents


 OUR SECOND SPONSOR is Inspired by Stamping
