FCCB 172 - Make a Splash

It's Monday again, and that means it's time for another fun challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut!!  This week's challenge is Make a Splash - create any project with a water theme.  This week, The Paper Nest  was super-generous and gave some of the DT members some digis to play with.  A huge "Thank You" to The Paper Nest!!  This is the first time I've ever used a digi, and I was really excited to give it a try!

When I saw the image of this little boy fishing I knew immediately it was the digi I wanted to use.  My sweetie loves to fish, and I thought of him when I saw this image.  I think I'm going to stash this card away and stick it in his work bag one of these days as a little surprise for him.

I've never colored a digi before - in fact, it's been a long time since I've colored anything!!  I didn't have any fancy markers or anything, but I did have some colored pens and pencils.  I outlined the image with my pens and colored it in with my pencils.  I don't think of myself as a great artist, but I was pretty pleased with how this turned out.  I may have to use some more of these digis!!

We'd love to have you join our Make a Splash challenge this week!  Link up your water-themed creations over at Fantabulous Cricut by Sunday evening.  And check out The Paper Nest for some really fun digis!!
