SCS Color Challenge

Hello!  I’m sharing my guest designer cards for the Splitcoaststampers color challenge this week.  The colors we’re working with are Cherry Cobbler, Soft Sky and Wild Wasabi, and our dessert option this week is to make two cards…one CAS and one more fussy.

My CAS design starts with a soft watercolor wash in blue.  Next I inked up my Penny Black tree stamp with the green ink and spritzed it lightly with water before stamping, and then added the sentiment from Verve and a crystal star.

Basically the same steps for the more detailed card…but I added several layers of the blue for the background.  Using the same technique on a separate sheet of watercolor paper, I then die cut the Tim Holtz tree and added some Finnabair Snowflake Paste.  The little PTI cardinals were cut out of Cherry Cobbler and the same crystal stars were used for a bit more sparkle.

Challenges entered:

Back soon with more my sweet friends…

  1. Wow Le-Anne, these are just gorgeous!! I love the water colour backgrounds and the pops of red look so striking against the blues and greens! Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog, you put a smile on my face this morning! 🙂


  2. Hey! LOVE both versions…but this time I like the simple one best. Go figure. I am usually all about “more fuss”. You have converted me to lower maintenance. 🙂


  3. Love the pair of these cards! Not sure which one I like best! I think the little birds draw in my attention, so I guess the second one. Thanks for joining us over at Just Us Girls this week!
