Watercolor Background: How Playful!!

I can’t believe my Watercolor for Card Makers class is coming to an end.  This Friday is the last day to submit all of our homework.  I have so much left to do.

It was truly an amazing class!  I learned a lot about water-coloring.  I was granted the opportunity to try different types of watercolors mediums (watercolor pencils and crayons, transparent water colors, opaque watercolors, kids watercolor, shimmer watercolors).

I’m hoping to make at least one water-coloring card a week.  This will allow me to spend more time with my daughter who also loves water-coloring.

Today’s watercolor technique was taught by Tim Holtz himself.  Truly fun and amazing.  He taught us how to make amazing backgrounds using “watercolor stamping or monoprint” using a stencil.

I had so much fun creating my card, that I made two cards..  I’m also submitting this card into the Papertrey Ink’s Make it Monday #165: Artsy Watercolor Backgrounds Challenge.  Betsy showed us how to create watercolor backgrounds using our current stamps.  I’m excited!!

Happy Watercolor

So, what do you think of this card?  It looks so delicious to me.  The colors are so vibrant.  My flower was punched from a watercolor background that I created.  I thought that bought more balance to the card.

Hello Friend

For my second card, I wet the outer edge of the flower to create the watercolor effect surrendering each individual flower.  That gives each flower a beautiful soft and subtle effect.

I love how both of my cards turned out.  I am going to try to create a couple more cards with this fun effect!!

Please let me know what you think.

Happy Easter…..

Today’s card was made for the Less is More Blog Challenge Week 169 Sketch.  I know, I know Easter was a couple of weeks ago but I didn’t get a chance to create a card for it so I took this opportunity to create one.

It is a very clean and simple card that I really love.  I used a couple of great products to pull of my CAS card.  Stampin’ Up! is retiring the Polka Dot Parade DSP  and the Large Rhinestone Basic Jewels.  That was a big shock to me because that paper is so popular.  It will go fast so if you want that paper and the rhinestone  just click here to purchase it.  I also used Papertrey Ink’s Button Stacks Die.  I love this die, the buttons are so cute.

Take a look:

Happy Easter

I used my circle dies to cut perfect circles and laid the DSP behind it.  I colored my bunny with my C3 Cool Grey Copic maker.

It’s funny because I wasn’t sure if I should color the bunny, so I asked my son because my daughter was sleeping, and he honestly gave me his opinion.  For those that know my son, he could care less what I do!!  So thanks E, for the help.

Soooo, what do you think?

Please leave me a comment letting me know what you think of my CAS card!
