WATER. WATER and more water... not enough water...

I never would have thought that I could combine these two challenges... they are totally opposite... BUT... low and behold... today I am doing just that... 

On Mondays I do my Zentangle Challenge... with, I am the DIVA and the challenge this week is to create something with B.Y.O.B.  (bring your own Beverage)   and so that is pretty easy for me... WATER...  WATER and More WATER... 

and also SIMON MONDAY CHALLENGE... All about a FACE...

Okay... they really didn't click with me either... but I wanted to make a special card for my Son and DIL... and so I created this picture... I started it on Sunday night... way prior to the challenges being announced...  So after looking on Monday to the challenges... I was surprised to see that this would really fit into both of these challenges... so I finished the picture off with tangling and then colored it my INKTENSE colored pencils... and then scanned it, printed and made this card... 

Okay... I am trying to work thru which part to show you first... so I guess I will show you the front of the card first...  such decisions to make!!!! 

 
This is the front of the card... do you see the face peeking out at you????? it is there...  you will see it better in a minute. 
I made the paper with distress inks and my worksheet.... and then stamped and die cut all the other pieces... coloring them with distress pens and inks.   

 
when you open the card... this is on the top part of the card... the large seahorse and the turtle are stamps and die cuts and they were colored and then glued onto the paper, that again I made from white cardstock, distress inks and stamps... 

 
Here is the SPECIAL INSIDE of the card..  my Zen tangle also for the week...  water, water and more water...  a mermaid with her new little one...  with all the sea critters with her loving the new little baby... 
 
The border is a Martha Stewart sea punch set... and the background paper again, white cardstock, distress inks and stamps... love making special papers that way... so much fun and they really make the card look GREAT.. 

 
The back side of the card... another piece of Bonnie paper... 
 
Here is a close-up of the TIA for the week... 
in all her glory... 
 
I tried to keep with the theme of ocean dwelling 'tangles' like purk, mooka, and all the other ones...  click on any of the pictures to see them larger... 


They just had a baby boy on July 3rd... and I wanted to make a send them a special card...
 
My favorite drink is WATER...  cant' get enough of it... we all need to drink nice CLEAN water...  no fluoride, no chemicals... just nice CLEAN WATER... my drink of all times... 
 
Our son loves Mermaids... so I had to do this mermaid for him... as this is his mermaid and their little one...  Love it..
 
Hope that both groups of people from the two different challenges enjoy this piece... I know that it is entirely different than you are use to... 
 
I had to do it... and I hope you like it...
 
Have a super wonderful day...  create with all your heart... and enjoy it... and thanks again for stopping by for a visit...
Love, Light and Peace...Bonnie

  5. Water one of my favorites, but I didn't know how to use it in my tiles, so I made coffee out of the water.... Yours are beautiful, the receiver of the card is very lucky!

  8. Since I was a little girl my favorite drink is water and the next is cola. Water all day and in the evening one glass of cola. So, you are not alone here.
    Your card is stunning, Bonnie!

  10. I've often wondered what merbabies look like - no, I haven't - but I'm glad that I know now! I'm glad she's going to breastfeed him, rather than using formula - probably hard to find in the ocean anyway.
