C4C55 Water Pump

Hello Everyone!!!  It's school holiday time here in Australia and the chaos has already begun!!  To top it off our beautiful Spring has gone and been replaced by cold weather and grey skies!  :(  So to make up for this lack of sunshine, I've decided to use this week's Crazy for Challenges sketch and ODBD image to make a bright, happy card!

I started with a base of Kiwi Kiss and layered with yellow bazzill and some Basic Grey DP from my stash.  The Basic Grey was cut into 3 panels - around the bottom I've attached some green ric rac and around the middle one I've added some ivory satin ribbon.  The water pump image is from ODBD's Never Thirst set and has been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (E31, E33, E35, E37, C1, C3, C5, YG13, YG17, Y35, Y38, BG0000, 0).  It was cut out with Small Circle Nestabilities and matted with dark green cut with Large Circle Nestabilites and popped up on top of some Very Vanilla cut with Lattice Pendant Spellbinders.  To finish I added a big ivory bow to the ribbon and Blush pearls to the top corner.

Stamps - Never Thirst (ODBD)
Paper - Kiwi Kiss, Very Vanilla, Yellow and Dark Green Bazzill, Basic Grey Lily Kate DP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Small and Large Circle Nestabilities, Lattice Pendant Spellbinders, Bow Easy, Ivory Satin Ribbon, Dark Green Ric Rac, Kaisercraft Blush Pearls, Foam Tape.

That's all for now, thanks for visiting!!!  :)
