Mother Teresa's Water Lily - MTTI 05

Hello again. Second post today. I'm loving the colors for this week's My Time To Create Inspiration challenge. Now I saw the colors as: turquoise, bright pink, bright green, and blush. Not too sure if they were the intended colors, but oh well.

For this challenge, I just had to use a stamp set I've had from Our Daily Bread called Mother Teresa. The sayings from Mother Teresa in the set paired with the water lily image are just perfect for any color combo, and especially this one.

I started by stamping on my card with Stampin Up! Green Galore ink to create a subtle background and then again on the Stampin Up! Tempting Turquoise layer. The main image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo black ink twice and colored with prismacolor markers with one image cut out to be popped up on dimensionals later. Once I was done coloring, I softly stippled Stampin Up! Bashful Blue ink and sponged Stampin Up! Blush Blossom ink around the water lily before layering on Pixie Pink.

I stamped my saying in the same Memento Tuxedo black ink and stippled & sponged again, before layering once more on a Pixie Pink scrap. Now that the basics of the card was done, I then added my cut out lily on dimensionals and some pink metallic faux brad stickers I had found at Joann's about a year ago (and still had) before sponging Stamping Up! Green Galore ink around the card to finish it off.

  1. Oh Pretty! The tempting turquise "pond" really brings an authentic cool water feel to your beautiful water scene.

  2. Bonnie, you totally rocked this color combo. Even though it's bright colors, it's somehow soothing. And beautimous!

  3. Lovely card - I really like the layout and the fine details like sponging or stippling around the lilies. Thanks for playing! Come back again.

    Love the lily pad! Sooo cute :O) I also like how you created your own patterned paper using the lily complements perfectly!

    Thanks for playing along! Hope to see you back tomorrow for a fabulous color challenge!
