Having been gone for a week visiting our baby granddaughter, I wanted to get back on the card-making track quickly. The problem: I didn't read deadline dates very well, so the first two cards I made were late. I posted one anyway because I like it. Onward ... to the challenge September CAS Mix Up.Thank heavens, these last a month! I'm loving the watercolor challenges, and I've been watching some great video demonstrations for instruction and inspiration.
Watercolor wash was especially rewarding with Peerless Watercolors....It's amazing how much color is contained on each sheet in that booklet!The watercolor washes turned out to be quite vibrant. In addition to the watercolor and stamping, I chose diecuts.
At this point, I must admit another problem: my first card for this challenge is my favorite with its green, blue and yellow colors, BUT it's not very CAS. Sooooooo....I made another one, with more white space. This card features a Technique Junkies image and a Verve die cut.
The card below was my initial choice, but it has very little white space. I reminded myself that I must always think "CAS" when starting on one of these challenges. The sentiment is from Impression Obsession, and the die cut is from Tim Holtz's "splatters" die set for Sizzix.
