CYCI148 - Happy Camper!

Is time flying by or what?! It's time for another CYCI color challenge. I had fun with this color combo by Elizabeth - Gray, Yellow, Turquoise, and White!

Those of you who know me, know that I LOVE turquoise! So, let just say... it's the focus on my card for this challenge. I'm sure you could tell that though. I stamped this adorable image and sentiment from a recent Stamp of the Week that I received from Unity called Camper Bliss using StazOn Jet Black ink. I had fun this time using different shades of one ink color to color it in. For this image I decided to use my neglected Papertrey Ink reinkers. I put a drop of the ink on an acrylic block and used my smallest watercolor pen to color this image. I used Hawaiian Shore ink to color the outline of the camper; a darker shade of the same ink to color the tree; and a very watered down version of the same color to color the sky. Loved that I could use one color for so many elements of the picture! I added some Smokey Shadow to parts of the camper, little touches in the windows, and the clouds. I added some Lemon Tart to the camper flowers and the flowers. Then I used some Classic Kraft for the tree trunk and the ground. All of this was done on the smooth side of a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock.

I added a layer of Hawaiian Shores polka dot paper to the white card base and then decided that I wanted to break up the color using the same patterned paper in Smokey Shadow. Since I love me some turquoise... I added some Hawaiian Shores topnotch twill tape. I cut out the watercolor panel using a Taylored Expressions Stitched Rectangle stacklet die, popped the panel up using stampin' dimensionals, and BAM!
