Painted Roses for Addicted to CAS #98

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.

Look at it shimmer. Clean, simple and Oh so pretty.
That little chickadee is soooooo cute and fun to watch.
Enjoy your day and have a great weekend

Love the card.......really stunning. I would like to know what kind of a bird it was that you pictured a while back........you asked people to guess what kind of a bird it was........it was a youngster. I must have missed the post that you told us what it was. I am curious as to what it was! I love your pictures of the wildlife & your woodland. I am also a MN gal but in the middle/west of the state & love the wildlife around the area. Thanks


I love how simple but gorgeous this card is. It must be stunning in person, but the glimmer shows in your picture. Always love your bird pictures. You capture great moments.


This technique yielded a very delicate image. Love the flakes of gold. Very pretty!

Such a gorgeous result with your gold paint, Jaydee! I love the shimmmery effect paired with the abstract details of the rose...truly stunning card! Great idea to create several cards while your paint was wet, too!
Your little chickadee is so sweet! I love that you capture nature and share it with us...Thanks!

This is so elegant card, Jaydee! I always enjoy unconventional use of materials, stamping with watercolour is a great idea!
