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.

Thank you for visiting and commenting ... always appreciate your feedback.
