CAS Watercolour and CAS Mixup - sending you ...

Hello Everyone!

Time to play cards in two challenges:

--CAS Watercolour - Splash Watercolouring Technique and CAS Mixup - Colour Your Dies

In honor of Nancy's last challenge as host, the technique at CAS Watercolour is Splash Watercolouring. 

The green panel, sun and arc behind the sun were created using Distress/Distress Oxide Inks in greens, yellows and pinks using Loll's Splash Watercolour Technique then die-cut.  To add some interest a circle die-cut from the pink panel was offset behind the sun. Part of the sentiment was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed using white EP onto a die-cut piece of grey card stock. The rest of the sentiment was stamped using black hybrid ink. For dimension the sun was popped up using foam tape. A few clear sequins complete the card.

Methods used:  Water-colour Splash, die-cuts, stamping, heat embossing.

Twofer - Butterflies

Hello!

Time to play in Darnell's Twofer Card Challenge #5 - Butterflies.  This challenge is thoroughly enjoyable ... making two cards for one challenge.

The cards presented are in the Birthday and Get Well categories.   The common element is the solid butterfly die cut from MFT Fancy Butterflies.

Card 1 - Happiest of Birthdays.  The butterfly was cut from a watercolor panel spritzed with water and color shine and half of it was adorned with gear die-cuts cut from the same watercolor panel and embellishments randomly placed for a mixed media look. A gear and enamel heart embellishment were adhered to the center. The butterfly was attached to an embossed wood-grain panel then adhered to the larger stitched rectangle panel. A simple birthday sentiment finished the card.

Card 2 - sending get well wishes. The butterfly was cut from a Distress Oxide Ink blended panel.  The companion to the solid die-cut butterfly was cut from vellum.  A few gemstones in the colors of the solid panel were attached to the spine. The butterfly was attached to a framed panel with an embossed inset using the MFT Grosgrain Texture Board.  A simple sentiment completes the card.
