Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #511. This week we have a color challenge.
We are using Emerald Envy, Night of Navy, and Pool Party. Sadly Emerald Envy will be leaving us soon. It is not in the new annual catalog. So, I guess this is a little tribute to Emerald Envy from some of his close friends, Night of Navy and Pool Party. Here is the card I made for today.
These colors made me think of water, so I decided to use the new Lilypad Lake Bundle. I haven't used it until today!
The base of the card is Emerald Envy 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4. Stamp the waves on this base in Emerald Envy. The stamp is not long enough to go across the entire front of the card. I had to kind of piece the stamping part way across. If you look, you can tell. At the bottom, I tried to do that where the bird would be. For the rest of the front, I just stamped a little on the sides. There is very little stamping behind the rectangle panel.
The Night of Navy rectangle measures 3 x 4 1/4. The Whisper White layer is 2 7/8 x 4 1/8.
At the top of the white layer, stamp the waves again in Pool Party. I did that 2 times. Stamp the rest in Night of Navy. This is supposed to represent sky and water.
Stamp the moon in navy on Whisper White. There is a framelit for this, but I just used the 3/4" circle punch. Add with a dimensional.
The boats are also stamped in Night of Navy. They are colored with Pool Pary and Emerald Envy ink. Just push the lids of the pads and color from that ink using an Aqua Painter. Try not to go over and over this. It will pill. Just color and be done. Cut these out with the Lakeside Framelits and add with dimensionals.
The bird is also stamped in Night of Navy. Cut it out with the framelits. Add with dimensionals.
Cut three groups of grass from Emerald Envy using the framelits and add with dimensionals. You will need to cut the dimensionals in smaller pieces.
For the sentiment, cut a Pool Party oval using the Layering Ovals. Stamp it lightly with the waves in Pool Party. I stamped this off first. The saying is stamped in Night of Navy and comes from the Lilypad Lake stamp set.
The inside of the card is all from Lilypad Lake. I used this same saying for my card last time. It's such a good one. Many people do need our prayers. The water is stamped in Pool Party and the bird in Night of Navy.
