Ah-h-h the dog days of summer.  It's hard to be too motivated in the midst of the summer doldrums.  I decided to take on a challenge which involved a simple request to make a card using anything that flies.  I jumped at the opportunity to use another background from my stash.  This background started with a design page from Cosmo Cricket's Just Add Water series.  These are somewhat thin watercolor papers already printed with a clear lacquer or gold foil design.  I added Peerless watercolors to this piece.  It dried pretty wavy but I used a heavy red liner tape to adhere it and everything smoothed out fine.  I would definitely use less water on future "Just Add Water" pieces.  I do like the design concept of this paper line.  I added a camouflaged word die (relax) to this card and added more die layers for a total of five.  I liked the more chunky look of the word for this card.
