Watercolor Blocks


I am super excited to share today's card!  I pulled out some watercolor crayons to try something a little different and I LOVE how it turned out!  This week, the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge is COLOR BLOCKS!  I used a stencil to watercolor my blocks of color for the background of my card.  LOVE IT!

Hello My Friend


I used a watercolor panel and then secured my stencil over it before coloring each spot with the water color crayons.  I then used a waterbrush to create the watercolor look.  I SO love it!  For the sentiment, I die cut the bubble tag die and stamped part of the sentiment, I then die cut the happy die in several colors and glued the layers together to give it a nice girth.  I really love this technique!

Hello My Friend (detail)


Be sure to head on over to CAS-ual Fridays to check out the amazing inspiration and to link up your own awesome CAS card showcasing color blocks!  I can't WAIT to see what you've made!  You can find the products I used on my card (or similar) in the links below.

Have a Happy!

  8. Your post encouraged me to pull out a stencil and try watercoloring pencils to fill it on. It is lovely. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Question: what is the best way to pop up the sentiment? Some of the handwriting dies are so dainty. I am not sure that pop dots would work.
