Guest Designing for The Outlawz CAS

Happy Sunday! Our weather went from 75 degrees to snowing within 24 hours. Quite the contrast we've been having lately. The weekend is supposed to be chilly and then back into the 50s again. Go figure! It is Indiana and they do say "wait 5 minutes and the weather will change!"
Today I am a guest designer for the CAS challenge over at The Outlawz. The challenge this week is to use paint on your project. I chose to use water colors. Since this is a CAS project I chose to make a full background piece using water color paper but only used a portion of it on my project.

I used a water color resist technique from Jennifer McGuire's blog for creating the background. You water color the paper first. Then stamp a background stamp using Versa Mark ink and emboss with clear embossing powder. Spritz the paper with water and dab up some of the color. The embossed section will retain the color while the rest will become a lighter color. I added my painted strip to my card base. I die cut the MFT Pierced Star and added a die cut candle from the Spellbinders Sweet Wishes die set. And to finish off I stamped a sentiment from a retired Gina K set called Heartily Yours.
I hope you'll join the CAS team at the Outlawz this week and use paint on a project. Check out the awesome projects from the design team.
I am entering these challenges:

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have an awesome start to your week!

What a fun way to create beautiful paper! I love the bold contrast of the yellow star on this card. It really draws the eye.

Thanks for joining us for our Birthday Card challenge at Cut it Up!

I love the paper you created! It all just pulled together beautifully. Love the colors and that it is simple but to the point.
I know what you mean about the weather. It has been very warm here, in fact so warm I actually layed out the past two Sundays and got my tan going. Not today! It was in the 30's this morning!

Love that technique which I don't know how you have the time to do with all that you do. Your card is stunning.
