CAS Watercolored Card

Hi!  I am just popping in today with a quick little card that I cased from Jennifer McGuire.  I was inspired by a beautiful card that Jennifer made the other day and I wanted to try one for myself.  If you don't follow Jennifer McGuire, you should!  She is so talented and does AWESOME videos and tutorials!  I embossed my floral image with white embossing powder and heat set it.  Next, I spritzed my watercolor paper with water.  Then I took my distress ink pads and applied them straight onto my craft mat and gave them a little spritz with water too.  I then took a paintbrush and brushed over my embossed image.  I dried it with my heat tool and then added some pearlized water and gave that a zap with my heat tool.  Added my sentiment and mounted my panel onto a card base and voila!  A clean and simple card.  I love how the distress inks pop against the white embossing powder!  Give it a try.  Here is the card I CASED from Jennifer: 

Yesterday I took 2 of my kids to the mall!  YIKES, what was I thinking?  My son needed some new clothes for college and my daughter decided she needed to come along too (she NEEDED nothing!!!)  OUCH!  Next time I think I definitely need to take one at a time, lol!

 I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  2. Thank you Sara. Hmm, I am not sure. This whole blog thing is new to me and I don't really know what I am doing, lol!! I know how to post, but as for the running of it, I am just winging it. I will see if I can figure something out.
