CAS Watercolour July 2018 Reminder - SPLASH Technique

Hello friends.  Just a friendly reminder that the CAS Watercolour challenge is open till the 24th and we'd love to see YOU in the gallery!


This months challenge is all about using the SPLASH watercolour technique for your backgrounds and Loll has a FABULOUS video (HERE) to show you just how easy it is!

I used a couple new SU! colors of ink (Soft Seafoam & Highland Heather) to create my background, and I wasn't too sure I liked it at first, but after I finished my card it really grew on me!  Take a look:


Once my background was dry, I used my MISTI to stamp (multiple times!!!) my Impression Obsession image of the birds on the tree branch (F16147).


I matted this layer to a black layer to frame it, and then added to a white card base that I had also added a white diecut from Tim Holtz's Mixed Media set.  My sentiment from PTI finished off my card.

The DT has some more great cards to inspire you with the SPLASH technique that you can find HERE, along with another lovely card from our Special Guest Marcia K too.  So check it all out and then play along with us...we LOVE it when you do!!  :0)

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!

  8. What a lovely, lovely card this is! The ink splashing gives the birds a nice, artsy background and I really like that corner die cut too! Again, kind of artsy and collagey. Beautifully done!

  10. I'm glad the colour combination grew on you, Marcia, as I really like it - a perfect misty softness to set the bird silhouette against. Also like the added interest of the die cut corner.

  11. I love the beautiful colors of ink you chose, Marcia! The splash effects are gorgeous! You used black for both the silhouette and the matte and the color gives definition to the soft background. The white corner die-cut adds so much interest! Hideko xx
