Hi everyone. Today I'm honoured to be the Guest Desiger for STAMPlorations March CAS Challenge - YAY! :)
Here's is the challenge.
I love how sunny, fresh and spring-like this card is with this bright yellow sprayed background. I used my watercolour sprays to create it, just adding the one shade of yellow. Quick and easy and it adds a lot of visual texture. :)
I stamped the bloom and leaves onto mixed media paper, coloured with my Zig Clean Color Real Brushes, moving the colour around and blending with a waterbrush. Again, another easy technique! I fussy cut the flower and leaves, and then popped them up over my torn vellum sentiment banner.
I hope you'll come check out the STAMPloration's March CAS Challenge and see all the beautiful cards made by the Design Team. And I hope you'll play along.
And since I used STAMPlorations stamps, I'm linking up to the Never Ending "Anything Goes" challenge at STAMPlorations.
Also, this card is another example of CAS Mix Up. A CAS design with mixed media products or techniques and fits the March challenge of Watercolouring. I have stamping, watercolouring (watercolour spray background + watercoloured flower with zigs) and "my choice" is vellum, heat embossing and fussy-cutting.
Edited to add: Thanks to my wonderful friend Sandie's suggestion, I'm heading over to link up my Spring card at Time Out Challenges. They are celebrating their two years --- congrats to them! Their theme this time is Easter and/or Spring with the twist of masking. :)
Thanks for coming by for a visit!
