A pair of dolphins



   This week's challenge at Crafting From the Heart is just for fun. As usual the theme is anything goes.
   I have used the DRS Designs digi called Splash the dolphin. I added a second dolphin by removing the water splashed and then flipping the design and rotating it. The water and dolphins were coloured using Promarkers and I used Distress ink to form the sky. I then matted and layered it onto mirri and white card and added a sentiment cut from mirri using a Tattered Lace die.
