CCEE1734



This week I am serving at UMCOR (United Methodist Corp of Relief) so got this done ahead to schedule it's appearance here on my blog. Anne is again hostess, and here is her challenge for us:
Make a background using water colors, then finish the card in whatever way you wish.

I have been having so much fun making watercolor backgrounds with Tim Holtz's new distress oxide inks. That is what I used for this card. When you dry each color between applications, the inks keep their colors and don't bleed together like so many wet types of media do. I stamped the silhouette and CS Lewis quote in versafine black ink. I added a few sequins has a finishing  touch.

Please check over at the CCEEStampers blog to see all the lovely creations the team has come up with for this week. Please use CCEE1734 as your keyword over on SCS, and please load your card over at the blogsite.

What an interesting background! I haven't been pushed into the Distress Oxide trend yet, but I do see how they can make a really cool look. I like the silhouetted wildflowers against that pretty background.

GORGEOUS watercolor background! I am SLOWLY getting my feet wet in the distress oxides - we can take baby steps together :)

Please stay safe in the storm - praying for you down here in Florida!
