CAS: miss you

Here is another CAS card.. this time I have used distress ink for the watercolor effect in the BG..


Read on if you are interested in the steps below & digital remix at the end.!!


These pretty much sums up the products used..
First, I cut a 5"×3 3/4" watercolor paper. Then I applied some distress ink (mowed lawn) over a pvc sheet & then sprayed some water with mini mister over that. Moved the paper over it multiple times. It gives that blotchy effect.
(Initially I tried with cardstock & it ended up very badly. It totally absorbs all the color instantly & doesn't spread at all So I had to discard it.)

I stamped & cut the cute little birdie & stuck googly eyes

I cut the 4 1/4" × 11" cardbase, folded in half. Pasted the colored paper with glue runner leaving 1/4" margin all around.

I stamped the birdhouse with memento tuxedo black, stuck the bird & wrote the sentiment "miss you" with the uniball signo white pen
I added a white margin around the bird as I wasn't satisfied with the black one. I guess it made a huge difference :) finally glossy accents over the bird.
Card is done.


I like the simplicity of it & maybe CAS style attracts me a lot. Hoping to do more.

Now for the digital remix :) lonely feel changed into a chirping romance !! So much Fun :)


Create. Have fun
