AAA Cards #71 Blending

Hi All,

Time for a new challenge at AAA cards.

For this challenge we want to see 'Clean and Simple' cards using some kind of blending.

Here is what I created:


I got this leaf dies as a pressie for the very lovely and talented Loll-thanks Loll. I have seen her use dies like this over panels of blended inks and brushos and decided to give it a go myself. I blended together some water colour paints and used 'wet on wet' water colouring to mix the colours together. I sprayed the oval panel with gold glitter but it is hard to see this in the photo. Finally I popped up the oval panel to add some dimension. The sentiment is from our sponsors for this challenge our Happy Little Stampers and the winner will get $20 Gift voucher for their fabulous store.

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is the very talented Michelle. Her creativity is amazing. Take a look at her blog here and you will see for yourself!

Have fun!

  10. I would probably toss the frame, or mount the oval and not the frame, out of habit, but I really like the effect of the mounted frame. I think it's what give this CAS card an edge. It's really classy!

  16. Beautiful card, Sandie! I think watercolour paper texture adds a special touch to your card, die cut looks even more delicate against it. - Sweet Kobylkin
