Guest Designer at Paru's card making challenge

I am super excited to be the Guest Designer for Paru's Card making challenge :) Her challenges are fun to play and run from 1 to 25th of each month :) So you will have plenty of time to play along.

The Story board for this month is FAMILY
There are also prizes to be won and I am also super excited to be one of the Sponsor's. I am giving away the Anchored Stamp set from my Stamp line Dee's Artsy Impressions :) Here is a look into the set...

The other sponsor for this challenge is Peek-a-boo designs :)

I decided to make the card and a tag from the same stamp set coz it works beautifully with the theme.
Here's a look into my card and tag...
I wanted to make a coordinating tag for my card :)
Here is how I made my card, I embossed the images on a water color card stock and the watercolored the background in shades of blue using Gansai tambi water colors. To finish the card I added a die cut heart from my stash.
To make my tag I diecut two tags, on the front tag, I attached a stripes patterned paper and a string of diecut hearts (from Mama Elephant). I then stamped the anchor and sentiment, colored it with Prisma color pencils :)
It was fun making and coloring these cards. I did both of my favorite things, watercoloring and Prisma pencil coloring :) Here is a closeup...

Lastly, I want to thank Paru for having me over :) I am excited to see what everyone comes up with.
Don't forget to play along, HERE.

Thank you for stopping by and leaving me a comment :)
