capture-decran-2016-09-30-a-13-21-47This card is a fun card full of wonder.  capture-decran-2016-09-30-a-13-21-36CASology week #217 theme is cute and I felt that the Color Throwdown challenge #412 had the perfect colours.  A real CAS card, the bird’s two tones were the best combination to make her sweet and the green fun foam leaves were the perfect perch.  Now I know clouds aren’t blue, but this is a FUN card!  A foam mounted frame to bring it all together with white heat embossed clouds.  Hope it makes you smile 🙂

Flower Power

CAS Colours & Sketches #193 uses the secondary colours:capture-decran-2016-09-30-a-12-23-28 Rich Razzleberry, Mint Macaron and Tangerine Tango.  That, in watercolour, is a real challenge!  Mixing these tones often make mud, but with patience you can manage to keep the palette clean 😉  This week on the Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog it’s anything goes YAY!

On Bristol paper I carefully smooshed, dried and re-smooshed to achieve my border.  Then I added Pearl Ex to add some shimmer.  Ink splatters of the 3 washes were added for cohesion.  Die cut flowers, in vellum and shimmer paper, were fastened with beads atop this left edge.  Then “Bonne Fête” was die-cut 4 times and glued together to give some dimension.  Hope you enjoy 😀
