CAS Birthday Wishes

Hi Friends!!

Here is another Clean and Simple (CAS) card that I created with a quick watercolor technique using the Pals Paper Arts PPA275 Color Challenge along with the Splitcoaststampers Clean and Simple CAS351 “Fall Leaves” Challenge and the TLC524 "Stamped Acrylic Block Background" Challenge. 

 Again, if you have not already visited the above sites, I hope you will take a moment to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Lightly spritz water onto a piece of watercolor paper, ink an acrylic block with Hello Honey Classic Ink and roll into Tangelo Twist Classic Ink, pressing down onto the watercolor paper and re-inking.

Lightly spritz the inked acrylic block images to allow the ink to spread and dry with the Heat Tool.

Ink the branches from the retired Watercolor Trio using Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink and stamp repeatedly over the acrylic block background, spritz with water to diffuse the branches and dry with the Heat Tool.

Once you are satisfied with the background, ink the branches again using Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink and stamp onto the background, lightly spritz and dry again with the Heat Tool.

Use a paint brush to drop water onto the panel and dry with the Heat Tool.

Stamp the sentiment with Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink, trim the panel and mount onto the Blackberry Bliss card base.

Stamp Sets:  Watercolor Trio (retired)

Ink:  Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey, Tangelo Twist

Paper: Watercolor, Blackberry Bliss

Accessories: Acrylic Block, Water Spritzer Bottle, Paint Brush

Thanks again for stopping by- have a wonderful week, my friends!
