Hey, everyone! Hope you had a terrific weekend! I am so so so happy to finally announce that I will be with CanYouCaseIt? as part of their design team! I started entering in the weekly challenges at CYCI a little while back and the amazing Eva asked me to join! This is my first card as a DT member and I am so happy I get to share it with all of you! Here is the challenge- Grays, Yellows, and Black!
I seriously fell in love with this combo and had a few ideas for the color challenge. But I managed to narrow it down to this design. Even though it is a color challenge, I wanted to still keep my card fairly clean and simple.
I started by stamping and die cutting some beautiful florals from W+9’s Doodle Buds stamp set. I used Versafine since I wanted to watercolor them in. I love the more graphic look of these stamps because they really allow you to color them in however you want to. I used a yellow and gray water color marker to get the challenge colors onto the card. After they were all dry I placed them onto my card using a combination of foam tape and liquid adhesive. I used one of the sentiments from the same set on the front of the card and left the inside blank. As a final touch I added some Wink Of Stella to the yellow parts of the florals to add just a little sparkle since it was such a CAS design. I really loved how it turned out and can’t wait to send it off!
I really hope that you enjoyed my card and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for me as a design team member at CanYouCaseIt?! It is such an honor to be selected after only a year of card making! I have truly found out why everyone says that this community is so wonderful! Thanks again, Eva and everyone else at CYCI?! Hope you get a chance to head over and join in on the fun! And don’t forget to “like” us on Facebook and follow the blog!
