Crowned Swimsuit Competition

Don't panic, you are not going to see me in a swim suit - that might just overload the internet. However we are having a Crowned Completion at Scrapdango and this is my week for a challenge.  Here it is:

I remember watching swims suit competitions and they are really honest - it is not much about the suit but rather the person filling it. So taking that idea I am using it for inspiration for this week's challenge.

This challenge is to start with the basics and see what you can co with it. This week the only paper you may use is single color cardstock. (you may use as many colors as you wish they just can not have other color or patterns on them) You may do what you want to it - stamp it, ink it, spritz it, spray it, tear it, emboss it or anything else you care to - but whatever is done is what you have done to it. This goes for all paper on you layouts - no printed embellies unless you are the one that stamped it etc. 

And of course why do people not in a competition wear a swim suit? Why to swim of course. So taking some inspiration from the water in which we swim, your project needs to have some blue on it. It can be blue in the photos, embellishments, paper, journaling etc, but it needs to be obvious.

I made this card at the crop on Saturday and everyone there really liked it.  It is the sample for this weeks challenge.
