Good morning! I’m back with my card for the second stage of Anna Kossakovskaya’s CASometry Challenge 2 – Make 5! She’s challenging crafters to use one stamp set to make 5 CAS cards (one for each stage)! I’m not sure how CAS my cards actually are but hopefully she’ll let them slide! You can find my first card here! And here’s card number 2:
This is SO totally out of my normal color schemes but I LOVE the way it turned out! I stamped the beautiful Sketch Ranunculus stamps onto watercolor paper with versamark and heat-embossed them with white embossing powder. Next I loosely watercolored them with victorian velvet, seedless preserves, pumice stone, and dusty concord distress inks. I deliberately kept the first layer very pale. Once it was totally dry I wet some of the embossed areas with water and dropped in a little more color. It was very difficult for my type-A personality but I tried to let the paint just do what it wanted to do and didn’t try to control it as much as I normally would. I let it dry and then splattered on seedless preserves and victorian velvet distress ink.
I die-cut the word three times from white cardstock and adhered them together with glossy accents. Then I stamped the rest of the sentiment on black cardstock with versamark and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder. I adhered them to my card panel and then added a few clear droplets to finish the card. So again, probably not actually CAS but I’m just happy to challenge myself to create five cards using the same stamp set! 🙂
