Dies R Us Challlenge #172 ~ Anything Goes using any brand of die that DRU sells

 Hello Blogging Friends!!

Happy July 1st!!  That means that today is the start of a new challenge on the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  The theme is always Anything Goes Using Any Brand of Die that Dies R Us sells. 

Here is my card for Dies R Us Challenge #172:


White card stock
Watercolor paper
Salty Ocean distress oxide
Orange paper
Green paper
Black ink 
Sentiment stamp
White embossing powder
Underwater stamp

For this A2 card I started by taking a piece of watercolor paper, Versamark and the Underwater stamp, I stamped the Underwater stamp with Versamark onto the watercolor paper and heat embossed it with White embossing powder.  After that I added some Salty Ocean distress oxide to the paper.  I took a piece of White card stock and the Memory Box Deep Water Collage die and cut out the paper.  I added the inked watercolor paper to the back of the die cut piece and than I added it all to a Turquoise card base.  I took some Black ink and stamped the sentiment onto the card.  I took the Impression Obsession Fish Set and some Orange and Green paper and cut out the fish and added them to the card.

Don't forget to check our Sister Store in Canada with warehouses in USA & Canada called Didi Crafts.

I hope you will come and join in the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  There's a new challenge theme offered on the 1st and 15th of each month and one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a gift voucher prize to the Dies R Us Store.  For your convenience, all the important Dies R Us links are provided below.
