I spotted this Splash Watercoloring challenge over at CAS Watercolour. I had a couple of small pieces of the Altenew Washi tape left from my last card, and it needs a little background to help fill the card. Add a dash of script and the lovely light dies from Alexandre Renke, and top it off with a sentiment from Altenew.
Switching sides for the second card ... and the darker flowers get darker liquid pearls.
So I took out my new, never been used before, cube builder stencil and started playing. For the first try I kept to one tone cubes in layers. I added extra black lines to the black stripe paper, and white gel pen to the "Big" sentiment.
It's time for a new CASology challenge. The cue word this week is ZOOM. This is a 2 week challenge as we know everyone gets busy over summer. I went with the idea of a zoom lens on a camera. I used a stencil through my Big Shot to create texture on my background.
This photo captures the glossy accents on the stars, but I lost the texture of the background. Couldn't seem to capture both!
I have stamped up a lot of my background stamps in black and greys so that they are ready at hand if I want to add a strip or matting.
You can see some of these used HERE and HERE. Pop on over to the design team to get more inspiration.
