More Peaceful Water

 Maybe it's because I've been near the oceans twice this year, that I'm being pulled toward the images that we have with water.  Although, the reason why I love this "Lilypad Lake" set is because of one of the sentiments "Be Calm and leave it to God."

This is another bundle offer with the stamp set and matching framelit dies.  I like how there are "extra" framelits included - ones that don't cut out the images, but provide additional pieces.  The grass, for instance, is not a stamped image, but is a nice addition.  There are also two "label" framelits to cut out the sentiments with.

For my first card, I used watercolour paper and the "water" image.  I stamped from the bottom up in Night of Navy, Pacific point, and Bermuda Bay. I stamped twice: once to provide deep colour and the second time to help merge into the next colour.  After all the colours were placed, I spritzed the piece of paper with water, causing the colours to run just a little bit. For the sky I used Balmy Blue, which I painted on with an aquapainter.

 Watercolour paper was used for this second card also, providing a background for the silhouetted diecut images.
The coordinating "water" framelit was used to create the background for this card.  I noticed, in the samples from the catalogue, that the crane's legs were tucked in behind the water, making the birds look like their legs were emerged - so that's what I did with this card.  The grasses were tucked into the "water" too.

Bundles really are the way to go.  You get a 10% discount and you get extra pieces to help create your cards or scrapbook pages.

That's it for today. When ordering your bundles, remember to use this month's hostess code:
