Hello


Hi friends.  Happy Friday!  Sharing a card for CAS-ual Friday challenge: Shades of Gray and Virginia's new challenge:  watercoloring.


 


I love using my Distress inks to get a watercolor look.  I die cut the flower using the Four petal die from CAS-ual Fridays.  I then stamped using my distress inks, spritzed with water and let dry.  I love the pop of color against the gray.
 

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Cardstock:  Basic Gray, Smoky Slate, Whisper white, Watercolor paper
Ink:  Versafine black, Peacock feathers, Mowed Lawn, Picked Raspberry, & Smoky slate
Stamps:  Wallflower (CAS-ual Fridays)
Accessories:  Banner framelits, neutrals candy dot

  8. Don't see many cards with black or gray that have an element of bright color on top. This is artistically done and it pops those flowers. Nice.

  18. Very pretty card, Kristie! Did you make that background paper with Versamark, or did it come that way? It reminds me of how we used to do that with the Versamark pads, a look I really like and haven't done for a long time. Have a great weekend! Hugs, Darnell

  22. Hi Kristie! Thanks so much for visiting my blog, and for choosing to follow me! I have done the same, and I can't wait to look around at your cards! You have such a clean style, and that something I admire and am trying to work on myself. It was so cool how you did the watercolor look on the flowers here--I'm going to have to give that a try!
