It’s been a while since I posted a CAN YOU CASE IT? challenge, but we are back. Our challenges will be moving to two week periods. More time to get those creative juices going! I have really missed being a part of the group, the challenges, and seeing everyone’s creativity. I can’t to see what everyone posts these next two weeks.
This challenge is a color challenge. The colors Elizabeth chose made me think of fall leaves, not that we have any fall colored leaves in Florida yet,……. everything is still green and sunny. Although, morning and evenings are cooling off just a bit, it’s still not sweater weather.
The colors of cardstock in this card are Pineapple Smoothie, Orange Creamsicle, and Cookie Crumb. I also used our Water Splash paper.
For the background I used our Journey Clear Pigment Ink and the Playful Leaves, (SS-0234) backgound stamp. The clear pigment ink makes the stamped image several shades darker than the card stock it is stamped on.
For the colors on the leaves, I used the technique FSJ coaches are calling Watercolor Splash. I love this technique because not only is it quick and easy but beautiful.
Here’s how you do it. Spray Orange Rave, Pineapple Smoothie, and Lemon Grass Splashes onto a clear sheet of acetate. Keep your colors close, but not on top of each other. Spritz a little water on top of the colors. The pictures below show the watercolor splash technique, but using different colors.
Take your Water Splash paper and put it on top of the colors, squishing and mixing all together. That’s it. You may have to blot your colors with a paper towel and hit with the heat gun if in a hurry.
After this is dry, stamp the leaves with Dark Roast and run them through the Amaze Machine . The leaves are from the set Autumn Time Bundle (BD-0057).
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you will leave me a comment.
