DYSU #13 Clear, Lt. Pink & Mauve

This week's sponsors are:

Blackleaf: is giving stamp set "Lantern Stamps"

Stitchy Bear: is giving $10 Gift Voucher (will be good on StitchyStamps, Floppy Latte Designs, and Lexi Creations)

Digis with Attitude: is giving a $10 CAD (Canadian Funds) Gift Certificate for their store

That took a little thinking because my image "Splashin Fun Ollie" from Stitchy Bear has an adorable duck.  I colored the image with promarkers.  For the "clear" I used glossy accents on the goggles and the inner tube.  The papers I used are from Echo Park - Springtime collection.

I love the effect as the inner tube now has an appearance of plastic.  The Lt.Pink is in the PP that looks like a wave and my cardstock, the mauve is also in the PP and the color of the inner tube.

Now head on over to DYSU Blog and see all the other creations made from the team and see if you were the lucky winner from last week.
