Water Coloured Card Challenge

Ahhhhh. Sunday. No helping the sister pack….no insisting on purging….no lifting boxes and bags. I was desperately in need of some art therapy so I’ve been down in the ‘lower studio’ (aka the basement) making some cards. Joe has yet another cold so he’s grounded and I’m hoping I don’t catch it so the basement is a good place to hide.

I just found another card challenge site: and their challenge was to make a CAS (clean and simple) card that included a) water colour b) stamp c) one other element…….and here’s the card I made to enter.

It’s a simple water coloured splash and then water coloured splattered background. An old but cute stamp from Inkadinkado and my extra element are the gems. These are quick cards to make but so much fun to do. I hope it meets the requirements.

Well, back down to the studio. I also made two double pocket cards so I’ll have something to post next week!

Your soft watercoloured background is gorgeous, Violet ... especially paired with the dark silhouette of your intricate bird. Those gems really add a lot of sparkle and shine. Also love the scored frame (another technique!) ... looks awesome! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!

Love how you've put watercolors to use for you! Very pretty and soft background for that sweet bird.
