Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Sending HUGS


Hello there. Today over at The Paper Players it’s time for Color Week. Jaydee has chosen a fun color trio for us this time around. Since I was pushed for time this week, I made a card very similar to a design you may have seen before. But that is okay, right? Who better to CASE than yourself! I also feel that this entire heart background thing that I have been doing so much of lately just works for me, and is such a fun and easy for all different types of cards. To stick to the colors this week and I knew the blue and green would have to be saved for the water, I thought…why not an entirely yellow sky. I had a bit of a brain fart when I selected my card base, however it is still in the blue family though. I have been having a ton of those brain lapses lately and I know it’s just stress and lack of proper sleep, hopefully the team will be okay with it.

Card Details: I used MFT cloud stencil and a heart stencil to start my background. I then masked off the rest to create my water. The water ripples are made with a stamp. You do have to do a lot of thinking and masking and covering when doing these types of scenes. They are never perfect, but that is what makes them handmade. The water and all the birds are from the same SU set called High Tide. The greeting is from Catherine Pooler and the boat is from Impression Obsession.
