Denise is hosting this month's Tickle a Teapotter challenge, Wat-er Load of Fun! She's looking for water park activities.
Edna may not be able to visit a water park, but she's determined to not miss any fun! She created her own water park. Hopefully the local drugstore won't mind it when they discover their suntan lotion cutout is doing duty as her lifeguard.
Brushed on ink for the grass and sky. Die cut fence sections and adhered to card base. Stamped, colored and fussy cut Edna. Used a clear gel pen to add gloss to her sunglasses, drink and ring, then dipped the ring in glitter for some sparkle. Used metallic gel pens to glam up her shoes, swimsuit and glasses. Fussy cut the pool and plumped it up with dimensional tape. Die cut an oval from vellum, colored it with an alcohol marker and layered it over Edna and the pool for a water effect. Tucked a piece of foil behind her for a sun tanning reflector. Stamped the muscle man on glossy paper and colored him with water based markers and fussy cut. Finished it with a die cut yellow vellum sun and sentiment stickers. Edna's having a good time in spite of the virus and staying safe! Hope you're staying safe too. TFL

Oh my gosh what a hoot, DH laughed as much as I did. Miss Carla you have created the most fabulous setting for Edna and her dishy lifeguard. I can 't wipe the smile off my face, no doubt a lucky Teapotter will treasure this. This is sooooo clever and fab my friend.
Please don't take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here.

Oh, brilliant! I would have thought at first that this might have been Lori's. Love your paper piecing and the vellum for water. And the sun! She did well to get the sun-tan cut-out home with her, LOL.

OMG, Carla! I'm dying here! So many great backyard "quarantine" water parks in the gallery this week. Edna is hilarious with her muscle man lifeguard. LOL! I sure would be thrilled if this one came my way!
