Chloe Stems and More …

Hello friends,

Today I am sharing my first CAS card for 2015 – yeah, hold on to your chairs as this is not usually my style! Sometimes it is good for me to just try something different from time to time. I decided to dig out my watercolor set and to create a clean and simple card. The chloe stems reminds me of fireworks going up in the air , so I layered them on the watercolor background of orange and yellow. For a bit of sparkle I added orange gemstones. Maybe I need much more practice with the watercolor effect – I tried a few more cards with different die cut and colors which I am also sharing. I always admire all the lovely CAS  cards and hopefully I can gain more confidence in creating them in future.

I would also like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Project details:

  • White cardstock and Amedeo watercolor paper
  • Reeves watercolor paint
  • Memory Box die “Chloe Stem”  No 98321
  • JustRite sentiment stamp set “All Occasion Nested Sentiments”
  • Orange gemstones
  • VersaMagic Archival ink pad “Midnight Black”

Here are a couple more cards I tried with my watercolors. I love the shades of blue on this one. The butterfly die cut is from Cheery Lynn.

The muted autumn colors are great for a “sunset” feel for the silhouette birds. The “Birds on a Wire” die is from Spellbinders In’Spire.

For this card I used splashes of pink and a Marianne Design Creatables flower die cut.

Thank you for visiting and looking at my cards. I hope next time I show more improvement on the clean and simple style of card making! Have a wonderful day.

Regards,

Amelia

    Amelia, wie sou ooit kon raai dat die CAS styl nuut is vir jou as hulle na hierdie pragtige skeppings kyk!!!!! En jou waterverfwerk is briljant – die kleure is pragtig!!! Jy het ook pragtige dies gebruik wat so mooi lyk teen die waterverf!!!! Ek sien sommer jy gaan nog ‘n CAS meester word, jong!!! Wel gedaan en geniet die nuwe avontuur!!!
    Groete en ‘n lekker middag!!!!
