Good morning! Today's card is for this week's challenge on the CAS Colours & Sketches blog.
Because it is the fifth Tuesday of the month, we have a DOUBLE challenge - a sketch and colors! Here is the challenge that was posted.
I did not have card stock in all the challenge colors, but I did have ink. So I decided to make a watercolor wash for the background and also a wash that I could use for die cutting the background of the flower and leaves.
By layering the inks I was able to get variety in my colors. I added ink, used my heat gun and then added more. An interesting thing happened - my Apricot Appeal is a bit old and you can see the very solid spot in the middle of the wash. It acted almost like one of the new Distress Oxide Inks and became somewhat opaque and chalky when it hit the water on the paper. Odd, but it gave a nice effect.
Please join us at the challenge. It's quite fun and a good jumpstart for your creativity!
