Hi friends! Can you believe it's December 1st already? Those holidays are just around the corner, and the CAS-ual Fridays challenge is Winter Blues.
I wanted to try some watercolor resist. Not sure I'm I love with this card, but I'm posting it anyway. I started by embossing this lovely image onto watercolor paper with white embossing powder. Then I used a lighter blue paint to color in the entire panel. Then I went in with a darker blue and painted the bird and bow (I see I missed a piece of the bow...just noticing that now!). Then I took some yellow paint and painted the pears. I originally had the sentiment embossed on the bottom of the panel, but it didn't show up well. So I cut the panel down and stamped the sentiment in some blue ink on white cardstock, cut it into a strip, and adhered it to the panel. I spattered it with white copic paint. It's mounted on a mustard panel to match the pears. I also spritzed the entire panel with shimmer spritz too!
You can see more from the CAS-ual Fridays design team on the CAS-ual Fridays blog.
Thanks for stopping by!
