Look For The Miracles--PP304 and ctd401

July 17, 2016

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!   The lovely Jaydee is our hostess this week!  She has a technique challenge for all of us.  Use Watercolor on your CAS project!  We can't wait to see what you create!

I am also entering my card in the  Color Throwdown Challenge.  I loved the colors in their palette this week.  I am also entering the Challenge Up Your Life challenge. 

My card is created on a white card base.  I used a piece of watercolor paper and trimmed it with a stitched rectangle border by Simon Says Stamps.  I stamped the sentiment in Versa Fine ink and heat embossed it in white embossing powder.  The stamps set is from Simon Says Stamp Look For The Miracles.  I also did the flowers from the same set.  The chevron border is from Papertrey Inks Noted Stamp Set.  I added the watercolor paints from Zig-Kuretake-Gansai paints to create this wash.  I love the way it turned out.  Yellow enamel dots were added to the flower centers.  

So happy you stopped by my blog today!  Please leave a message!  I love to hear from you!  

Don't forget to check out the fabulous inspirations from our design team and I hope that you will play along with our challenge this week.
