CAS Colours & Sketches #185

Hi All

I am super excited to announce that I have been invited to be the Guest Designer for August at CAS Colours & Sketches. It is a weekly challenge blog which starts on Thursday and winners are announced on Monday. It's a great source for inspirations so check out the challenges and join in.

Here is my design for challenge #185

I used White Stampin' Powder to heat embossed a flower from the Falling Flowers set - having the raised outlines made watercolouring with the Aqua Painters and Stampin' Markers so much easier.

Once I was happy with the flower, I used copy paper to mask it and stamped Gorgeous Grunge twice in Dapper Denim. The flourish from Falling Flowers was achieved by using the marker to stamp and 2nd generation stamping techniques.

The flower and splatters were then coated with Clear Wink of Stella Glitter. The sentiment from Thankful Thoughts and was also heat embossed.

Check out the rest of the design team's cards and join in the fun at CC&S#185

Thank you for stopping by

  4. Beautiful card and CAS design. I especially like the soft swirls and splatters coming from the flower in the centre, it creates a beautiful soft movement. Lovely to have you GD with us at CC&S this month. Hugs Bev x

  5. The way you've colored this flower reminds me of Delft tile. It's lovely! I'm so glad you agreed to be our Guest Designer at CC&S this month! :)
