Happy April (gulp!!)! A new month means a new hostess on the CC&S Challenge Blog and this color combination is brought to you by Beverly.
I was on a staycation at the end of March and "playing" in my craft room with some techniques using Distress Inks for watercoloring. Jane's card from last week gave me the idea of rubbing ink right on the watercolor paper and then stamping in black. I loved her look so much, I CASED her card. Thanks for the inspiration, Jane!
One has to let go of the result when using this technique because everything is out of your hands once the water hits the paper!! I had several pieces of paper on my craft table, from very vibrant colors to soft colors. For this card, I decided spraying a little water on the colors gave me the look I was going for. Just bought these dies from Avery Elle, which fit perfectly along the border. (Since I didn't take a trip, I could justify a few new toys and got the matching stamp set!!)
Pop by the CC&S Blog and see what the rest of the DT in store for you this week!
