I chose to use Gigi for my card. I made the background first. Water color paper and an overall stamp from SU -cross hatch and clear embossed the image. Then I started adding H2O paints till I got the effect I wanted. Let it dry while I colored up the image. I know she is in a sailor outfit but I wanted to pull the colors from the background and make it a nice colorful card. I did not have paper the color I wanted for the sentiment so used copics and colored the white paper then stamped the sentiment from Simon Says. I rounded the corner of the image and some viva pearls to the journey sentiment.
I hope you head over to Inspiration Destination and play along.
