CAS Watercolour July 2018 - SPLASH Watercolouring

Hello friends.  This months challenge at CAS Watercolour is all about using the SPLASH watercolour technique and Loll has a FABULOUS video HERE to show you just how easy it is!


I used one of my favorite color combinations of pink and orange to create my SPLASH water colored backgrounds and came up with this:


I love how soft and pretty this came out!  I actually did 3 layers, drying between each one.  I started with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink, then Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink, and then a very small layer of Picked Raspberry Distress ink.  Once my layers were completely dry, I embossed with white my new PTI stamp called Cover Up: Grid...I love the look it gave my background!  Here's a closer up:


Next I used an AliExpress die to diecut my rectangle frame with the torn look edges, and then added a white flower die cut (also from AliExpress).  I finished with a simple embossed sentiment on a black strip and an enamel dot.

Make sure you check out Loll's video (HERE), and all the inspiration from the DT (HERE), and our special Guest Designer Marcia K.  This challenge is open till the 24th...we can't wait to see YOU in the gallery!!

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

  3. LOVE your background. My favourite colours too! :) The white embossed grid looks amazing over top. I like that it has thin lines to the grid so it adds something special but doesn't take away from the gorgeous background or white die-cut flower. Beautiful card my friend! xx

  13. Your splash watercoloured background is so soft and pretty, Marcia! The mix of the colors is beautiful and I love the splash effect especially with the heat-embossed white grid lines! You've made the prefect background for the sweet flower die-cut. The black sentiment strip is a nice touch too! Hideko xx
