Moon Lake for Paper Players #244

Hi Everyone.  Happy Sunday.

It's the fabulously talented LeAnne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a stunning color combo for us:


Isn't that a fabulously serene color combo.  I would never have put them together, but the minute I saw them I thought... WOW... I know exactly which set to use for this color scheme.

I knew the canoe image from Moon Lake would be perfect for these colors.  It took a little while to get the right shading with just the three colors, but that's the wonderful thing about watercoloring, you can do more muted colors and then add shading and depth with the same color marker.

Here's my card:

Moon Lake

I love the texture the watercolor paper gives and, of course, had to add a little shimmer and shine to the water with a touch of Wink of Stella pen

I am so pleased that Moon Lake has carried through to the new catalog and know that I will be using it often.  

The players have some fabulous cards as inspiration for you, I hope you will check them out and then play along with us this week.  We'd love to see what you create with this fabulous color scheme.

 On a personal note:

I thought I'd share a couple of shots of our regular visitor.... we think this must be a female as she comes and goes very quietly.  It seems that Niles and Daphne have not returned to our neck of the woods this year, but are quite happy to have one of the Crane's as a regular visitor.

I loved this photo... she's grooming and has created an almost whimsical heart shape with her body:

Aren't her feather colors beautiful?  She really is so elegant.

I'll be back on Tuesday with another card.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
