Swanless Lake

Mornin', kids!  How's it going today?  Looks like we might actually have a sunny day here, seems like it's been raining for a week.

Alas, even with all the rain I don't have a pond with water lilies in it, but I do have a water lily stamp!  This card features three stamps from Swan Lake, and somehow I haven't used the swans on anything yet.  Hee.  I did a light watercolor wash on watercolor paper for the background, I am loving that look lately.  Then the main image is stamped on Very Vanilla and I doubled up the cardstock on that layer to make it a little sturdier.

The colors are courtesy of this week's Global Design Project color challenge:

I hope they'll forgive me for adding in some Pool Party, but my water lilies needed...water.  They also needed sparkle so I brushed on some Wink of Stella.

I also used this week's Paper Players sketch:

And that's all she wrote for today.  Have a great one, y'all!

Very pretty card.

Hot here, but we're expecting weather maybe tomorrow. We'll see. It often diverts or fizzles before it gets here.

A very pretty card. I love the stamping on the horizontal element and your pretty little water lilies. Great take on the sketch. So glad you joined us at the Paper Players this week
