Clean and Simple with Water Droplets

Happy Weekend !

I was blog hopping and noticed at Sylvia's Blog and then Florence's Blog that Addicted to CAS code word for the next two week's challenge is "Water".   I have so many beautiful Water Effects stamps by Designs by Ryn, I decided to get them out for a quick 'play'.

I enjoy the challenge of one-layer CAS cards and created this one with Water Droplets 2.      My 'regular style'  is not CAS and sometimes I spend hours to create a card so it's nice to design something that is fast.

But I was in a panic when suddenly my blog disappeared !   I wonder why that happens ?   I went through the security steps to get it back again.   Whew !



I masked off an area of a folded white card and blended Peacock Feathers, Squeezed Lemonade & Shaded Lilac Distress inks.   I left the mask in place and flicked some water over top to create water marks.   After removing the mask I stamped Design by Ryn's Waterdroplets 2 and Just Because (from a mini Basic Grey stamp set) with black Versafine ink.  I highlighted the drops with a white Gellyroll pen and I'm done !

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend,
Shirley

  5. Love the way you've interpreted the challenge with both water droplet images & flicking water onto the blended Distress Inks. The crispness of your black stamping is delightful& it's so effective with some stamped off the meandering strip of colour - it literally looks like a stream of colour meandered across the card stock.
