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.
