Watercolour Blues ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your weekend is going well. I appear to be in the mood to create my style of CAS card and here is my card …

Another 5" x 7" card
Good to post
All the stencilled and stamped details
They remind me of fireworks!

Created for me and especially for these Challenges

I also got to use two snippets too lol! One was a reject and I used that to die cut the ‘hello’ from and the second was a piece of white textured card that is quite small and normally I would use only for die cutting but it fit this stamp perfectly so it was meant to be lol! I coloured the white snippet by pouring blue Spectrum Noir AquaTint onto the card and tilting it here and there. I also lightly sprayed the card with water on one side to get the ink to bleed out that way. I used a lovely Hero Arts wood mounted stamp that were gifted to me by Brenda when I won her candy and I used a Hero Arts stencil to colour the card blank. I was careful with the stencil and made sure that lots of white from the card blank is still on show.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x

So pretty Karen! Blue is my favorite color and this is really stunning! I love the bold color against the clean white embossed florals!
