CAS Watercolor Winter Christmas Wishes

Hi Friends!!

Here is another Clean and Simple (CAS) card that I was able to create this weekend for the Colour..Me #97 "Striking" Challenge along with the CAS(E)This Sketch #149 Sketch Challenge and the Addicted toStamps and More #170 Photo Inspiration 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:

Ink the holly branch from the retired set, Watercolor Winter and sentiment from Endless Wishes using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.

Color the holly branch image with the Real Red and Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers, spritz with water.

Use the Simply Scored™ Scoring Tool to score along the sides of the stamped images.

Ink the thick splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge with Old Olive Classic Ink and stamp off onto a scrap piece of paper before stamping onto the panel, lightly spritz with water.

Adhere the dried panel to a piece of Real Red cardstock, trim and adhere to the Whisper White card base.

Stamp the poinsettia image using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.

Color the poinsettia using the Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker, spritz  with water and once dry, carefully fussy-cut the image.

Color the center using the Delightful Dijon Stampin’ Write Marker, add white accents with a paint brush using Titanium White Acrylic Paint.

Mount the flower to the card front to finish off the card.

Ink:  Stāz-On® Jet Black, Old Olive; Stampin’ Write Markers- Real Red, Old Olive; Titanium White Acrylic Paint
