I created this card for a couple challenges on SCS. One was the Clean and Simple Challenge to use scallops on your CAS card, and one was the Technique Lover's Challenge to revisit an old technique of water coloring on kraft. We were to emboss an image on kraft paper in white, then water color it as is, or use white craft ink or paint on the image, and then water color over that. I used just white craft ink on my stem and leaves, let it dry and water colored it lightly, but the flower, I embossed in white, then painted it with white acrylic paint. When that dried I used SU! inks to color it, using an aqua pen. I popped up the image but kept the card CAS to fit the rules. I'm still struggling with clean and simple, but I am challenging myself to conquer the fear and keep trying!!!
The image is from SU! Fabulous Florets, and the sentiment is from SU! Best Yet set. It was fun to get out some stamps I have not touched in ages and play! Today is my birthday and I had been sick yesterday, so didn't feel up to anything too taxing today... but this was just for fun.
Here's today's blessing from my "Blessings from the Word" box:
"The Lord will work out His plans for my life - for Your faithful love, O Lord, endures forever" NLT
I hope your week is off to a great start!
