Hi Everyone. Happy Friday.
It's the fabulous Anja's turn to host our Addicted to CAS challenge this week and she has a theme that I just cannot seem to avoid:-) Seriously, I am addicted to watercoloring right now.
If you are the winner of our challenge this week, our fabulous design challenge creator - and stamping store creator - Kylie has a great prize for you. A $15 certificate for you to try out the great and versatile designs that Kylie has in her store "Happy Little Stampers"
We also welcome our guest designer the very talented rieslingmama - Maria. I hope you will pop along and check out her gorgeous CAS creations.
I made several cards for this challenge and ended up deciding to show you the most clean and simple of them all. I made multiples of this card as I didn't want to waste my precious gold watercolor paint. So, I ended up with about 10 of them :-)
Here's my version in white. All I did was take the stamp, paint some of the watercolor paint on top of the stamp - and put it onto Neenah Solar White cardstock. Because the paint wasn't terribly wet - it didn't warp the card and all - and take a look at the shimmer on it:
I stamped the sentiment in black to make it pop - let the paint to dry and the card was ready to go.
Here's the full card:
I hope you will join us this week. If you are looking for some inspiration, you have to look no further than the cards from our amazing design team.
On a personal note:
It has been a very long week workwise, so I am going to keep this post short. But, for those of you who come to my blog post to see something other than cards..... here you go :-)
I managed to capture this shot of the little chickadee cracking open a seed on the feeder. I love these little guys!
I'll be back with another card for you tomorrow - and a little surprise! In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight - including my dearest Tinkerbell.
