CAS Watercolour February Challenge

Hi everyone.  It's the start of the CAS Watercolour February Challenge.  This month is hosted by the lovely Marcia (Marcia's Stampin' Pad).  We are excited to have Michele (I Card Everyone) as our Guest Designer this month.  Welcome Michele!

I wanted to make more of a dramatic looking card so started with the black card base.  I stamped my image in black onto white mixed media paper and watercoloured with Distress Inks (Festive Berries, Mahogany, Black Soot).  I added a thin, striped black and white washi tape to the left side and heat embossed the sentiment in white.  It wasn't until I went to write my post that I realized I used this same flower for last month's challenge.  I really do like this stamp!!  And having a matching die makes it so easy to use. :)

Close-up ...
Please check out the challenge post to see the gorgeous cards from our Designers, and Guest Designer Michele.  I hope to see you in our galley!!

Stamps:  Perfect Peony (Clearly Besotted); thank you (unknown)
Paper:  Black card stock (SU!), Mixed media (Strathmore 140 lb.)
Ink:  Obsidian Black (Altenew); Distress Inks:  Festive Berries, Mahogany, Black Soot (Tim Holtz); Versamark
Accessories & Tools:  waterbrush, matching die for image, stripe washi tape, white embossing powder, heat tool

Quite a dramatic look on the black card Loll and love your pretty flowers, and such a great idea to keep your leaves in that soft grey tone, and the washi tape just breaks up that plain black background too. A fantastic card. x

Mac Mable said...

I so love backgrounds of black cardstock Loll and yours is eye catching, dramatic and so very beautiful. The pop of colour is so pretty and the beautiful stamp and die cut are fabulous (Thank you Loll for mine x...I love it x.).

Nstiz said...

This is so dramatic with the white on black, something I never think to do. Beautiful water coloring on this and love the added strip for interest. You are one of the few people I know who can emboss in white without having all those white flecks. Beautifully done, Loll!

Julia Aston said...

Oh, these look SO pretty against the black Loll! Beautiful watercoloring on both blooms and leaves and sweet little striped edge there to tease the eye! xx

Robyn Oliver said...

So striking and gorgeous - beautifully watercoloured, stunning to use the black card with the washi tape detail, and that is surely one lovely stamp... love this card Loll, hugs Robyn

Barb Ghig said...

Beautiful watercoloring and I love how the red flowers pop against your black background, Loll! Great idea to add the diagonal striped washi tape, too...such a dramatic feel to this card! xx

nancy littrell said...

Oh My..Elegant, striking CAS design with the black cardstock, stamped, watercolored and die cut pretty flowers, Loll. Love how you added the Washi Tape strip too. Thank you for Sharing, my friend. Hugs..Nancy

Christine Alexander said...

Love the image on the black base, it's so dramatic. Great watercolouring and love the touch of grey on the leaves and stem:)

kiwimeskreations said...

Oh Loll what a great card - so dramatic with the flowers on the black. Stunning!!

Anita in France said...

The softness of your lovely colouring contrasts wonderfully with the dramatic black, Loll ... and with those cool graphic stripes ... fabulous! Hugs, Anita :)

Viv said...

Dramatic this is Loll. Just love it. I have a terrible relationship with black card - mine always end up with sticky fingermarks and glue showing everywhere.
The washio tape is just enough to remove the starkness of the black base and I can see why you love this stamp too - a perfect card. x

Ros Crawford said...

That is one pretty stamp and the card is glorious!

Daffodil Cards said...

Dramatic? Yes! but so VERY Beautiful.

My Paper Epiphany said...

Wow! You've reminded me how dramatic a black card base can be with the right topper! This so stunning and the b/w border really finishes the look!

Susan said...

Wonderful card, Loll. The black card base is fabulous for the dramatic effect you wanted. The striped washi tape is a great design element and keeping the leaves grey to go with the black and red challenge is perfect.

Kia's Place said...

Love that you used a black card base Loll to show off your beautiful blooms. Beautifully striking.

Bonnie said...

This is definitely a stamp to use and reuse, Loll! I love how you've colored it and the black background makes the colors pop beautifully! A stunning card, my friend!

Ina G said...

Wow Loll what a stunning card this is on black. Beautiful stamp and deserved inking often. Love the strip down the side. Perfect finishing touch.

Brenda said...

Wow, this is definitely a dramatic looking card Loll! It is just stunning! Of course I think red and black are beautiful, dramatic and sexy colors together. I am really loving that flower stamp/die you used, and you have watercolored it so beautifully. Loving the thin washi you used too. Just a very stunning card! Hugs, Brenda

Beautiful card. Very striking with the black base. I have this stamp die set and love it. TFS

Trina P. said...

Your gorgeous watercoloured peonies look incredible against the black. Fabulous design too. I can see why you used this stamp two months in a row.

Papercraft Boutique said...

You got the result you wanted - a dramatic card, Loll!
The black and white striped washi tape is a wonderful addition. I totally understand that you naturally reach out to this floral stamp. It’s so pretty and it makes you feel like watercoloring. Love the pop of the pretty red blooms against black and the soft gray on the leaves and the stems.
Hideko xx

Bobby said...

Drama you wanted and drama you got, Loll. The red flowers are lovely and I love the added stripes.

papierelle said...

The dark background makes the flowers shine.

Jo said...

Black card stock does make a statement. The dark pink blooms and grey leaves are wonderfully painted and I love the balance created by that strip of striped washi tape. xx

I remember my experience with hackers i contacted online, i almost lost hope in finding out if my husband was loyal to me and has been loyal in our 20 years marriage,I lost a lot of funds in paying these so called hackers so i made up my mind that if i get scammed again i'll just forget about finding out what God doesn't want me to know, Then i saw reviews about ( HACKINTECHNOLOGY@GMAIL.COM ) and decided contact him and if and if i hear any stupid excuse won't contact anybody and just accept that God doesn't want me to then he proved to me that he isn't a cheat by working a sample job for me but to my greatest surprise he did the job and sent results to me fast, i was so happy but sad part was i divorced my husband, and i will drop an advise for people who wants any kind of hacking services stopped being scammed by people who impersonate being hackers, (HACKINTECHNOLOGY@GMAIL.COM) for a fast and clean job.Here is his cell number +1 (669) 225 2253 , Thank me later.
