DS4J Challenge for Water Day

International World Water Day is held annually on 22 March, to focus attention on the importance of freshwater, and to advocate for the sustainable management of freshwater resources.  Digistamps4Joy's Blog challenge for the next 2 weeks is to create a papercraft project focusing on WATER, using predominantly BLUE on your creation. What FUN!!! There are some amazing digistamps in the DS4J store that you can use to create this challenge. I used the "Merry the Mermaid" image and actually made TWO projects, neither of which was a card!
(1) I had the opportunity to take a walk one morning, along a beach on the SE coast of South Africa in Port Alfred, and collected a small bag full of these stunning little 'green urchin' shells. I put them into an empty bottle with some dried seaweed I also collected, pasted a holographic piece of blue paper inside at the back, then coloured in the mermaid image, and propped it in amongst the shells!

(2) I have been meaning to make one of these tissue box covers, but just kept forgetting, until this challenge came along! I used the same Merry the Mermaid image from Digistamps4Joy, used some plastic ribbon I found in a little shop at the coast, then covered the tissue box with blue papers, and put the image on the front of the box. I see this box every day now, and still love it!
