Inlaid Dies, Flowers and Colors

I have a few different cards for a few different challenges.

Addicted to CAS - Inlaid Dies



Die cutting the balloons and die cutting the striped layer to have these line up was a little more difficult than I thought it would be.  It took a few tries, but finally got it finished.  


CAS on Sunday - Flowers

CAS on Sunday


The flower and leaves is from Altenew and the sentiment is Gina K.  The base stamps were first stamped with white ink and then the colors to keep the colors more true.





Still trying to watercolor, maybe some day I'll get it!  Stamped the flowers from Altenew on watercolor paper with Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress ink and then watercolored with Twinkling H2Os.  There wasn't enough definition, so lined the outline image up with my MISTI and restamped the line in coordinating colors.  Stamped the sentiment from Concord & 9th with Versafine Onyx and heat embossed with clear ep becuase it wouldn't dry.  Layered onto to Melon Mambo and a peachy/orange cardbase.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog!
