Hello, Today over at Seize the Birthday we have a color challenge starting and JoAnn is our wonderful hostess. She wants us to use Red, White, and One other color of our choosing on our card and or project. As you can see, I chose blue as my third choice.
Card Details: These darling Manatees are from Whimsy Stamps and were part of a set that was released for a short time to raise money after the devastation from Hurricane Ian. This is the first time I colored them up. I think they are so cute! This started out to be a one-layer card as the set didn’t come with dies, but then in the end I decided to back it with a piece of blue cardstock. The stencil is called Groovybut I think it works great as waves. The greeting is an oldie from Papertrey Ink. I had originally planned to leave the heart completely white but then I thought the manatees needed to be in the water and it was just too stark, so I came back lightly with my blending brush. I colored the Manatees with both Copics and Prisma Colored Pencils.
I am also linking up with Time Out this week as they are celebrating their 9th Birthday! Happy Birthday to them! That is a wonderful accomplishment.
Now I hope you will head on over to Seize the Birthday and check out the amazing cards by the DT and our Two Surprise Party Guests- Stephanie and Claire. This is Stephanie’s last post with us and we have totally enjoyed having her on board. Thanks, Steph for a great couple of months, you certainly were a delight to work with! Welcome, Claire, and congrats on winning our last challenge.
Take care and happy crafting, Nanc’

Nanc’ your manatees are too too adorable! It must be so fun to live near water and use so many fun water themed stamps. I love this and think the background does look like waves too!

I enjoyed this challenge using red and white and one other color. But I must admit you got the best luck using just a little bit of red. Very creative my friend. Love your card.
