Today on the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge, we have a color challenge.
We are using Fresh Fig, Soft Sky, and Sahara Sand. I love these colors together! For some reason, it made me think of the woods in the winter. So this is the card that I made.
It just feels so calm and serene. The trees are from a new set called Waterfront. This stamp set will be in the new Occasions catalog beginning on January 3rd. You are going to love it!
Start with a card base of Fresh Fig 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored and folded at 4 1/4.
The Sahara Sand layer is 3 1/2 x 4 3/4. It is attached with dimensionals.
The Soft Sky layer is 3 1/8 x 4 3/8. It is also attached with dimensionals.
The next layer is Shimmery White card stock. It measures 3 x 4 1/4. Make a wash of Soft Sky on this layer. I used a few drops of Soft Sky reinker in the lid of the pad. Add a couple drops from your Aqua Painter and mix. I left a little white around some of the edges. Let this dry.
Stamp the trees from Waterfront. Some are stamped in Sahara Sand. The Fresh Fig trees are stamped off on scrap paper before stamping on the project.
The word friend is also from the Waterfront stamp set. Stamp it in Fresh Fig.
Stamp some stars on your project in Soft Sky. This is from the Night in Bethlehem stamp set. This set is being carried over so it will be available for a while.
Add droplets of Wink of Stella over the layer. Hold out a finger and tap the Wink of Stella against it to randomly add the spots.
Here is the inside of the card. More trees are added and stars just as on the front. The sentiment is from the Waterfront set.
This card is quick and easy. I think it's very pretty.
Thanks for reading my blog today. I do appreciate it! Come back!
