{Clean and Simple} CASology 196 – Move

Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card is:

Week 196 - Move

Take a look at my card:

Hello Friend (CAS)

I have to be super doper honest with you!  I created this card a couple of weeks ago because I wanted to play with a new set of watercolors that I received called Gansai Tambi Starry Colors.

Not know what to do with the completed card, I just put it to the side and was going to use it for my Did You Know Series on Instagram.

Then I saw the cue card and said to myself, these feathers move when the when blow so why not use it. My son says mom I don’t see the correlation.  I tried to convince him, he just looked at me. LOL!!  I told him I’m going with it.

So here we are:

Creating this card was super cool.  The watercolor is so vibrant and pretty. I will talk more about them in my series that will go live this week.

All I did was stamp the Papertrey Ink What the Doodle Feather stamp set image using Versamark Ink and sprinkled Hero Arts White Embossing Powder.

Heat set.

Then I watercolored the Red Gold and the Yellow Gold into the feathers with little water.  The watercolor is so shimmer and creamy.  A little bit goes a long way.

Gansai Tambi

I used Mama Elephant Femme Frames to die cut the card front panel.  Then I adhered the panel to the card base using Fun Foam.

Super easy and beautiful!!

What do you think?  I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Watercolor Monday!!!

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with a2z Scrapbooking and our December Challenge!

I’m excited about this challenge because the theme is Watercoloring!!  Yayyy, who doesn’t love watercoloring.  This technique is so much fun.  No two cards look the same.

Take a look at what I created:

All Good Things

Don’t you just love how those colors just mix with one another.  I used 4 different colors to create this background.

I added the ink to the front of my stencil.  I added water to the ink to activate it.

I turned the stencil upside down and placed it on the watercolor paper and used a piece a paper towel to pick up the excess ink and water.

Once I picked up the stencil, I used my heat gun to dry the watercolor panel.

Once dry, I added it to the black cardstock.

I stamp the sentiment with versamark and embossed it with Hero Arts White Embossing powder.

I added foam tape behind the banner and adhered it to the front of the card.

I added some sequin to the front and that’s my card!!

So what do you think?  Let me know.
