CAS....friend to friend

Happy Thursday Peeps!!

I have been covered up over here making swaps and trying to get some Design Team commitments done. I am running behind so today I am sharing a card made a week ago for the Clean & Simple Challenge on Splitcoaststampers.

It was a one layer sketch challenge. I used a set I love to watercolor from Stampin' Up called "The Nicest Things".

I stamped the image onto some white card stock with black stazon and colored with my aqua painter and ink pads. To be honest, for coloring directly onto card stock and not using watercolor paper, I prefer to use a non SU white. I do love very vanilla for this method of declaring but the SU white is a bit to slick and smooth, I have found  some white by neenah is perfect for me. Still doing this method of water coloring you need to be careful with the amount of water and ink. I would say this method is an advance skill technique, but give it a try if you love to watercolor, I love the look.

Well, that is all from me today, thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
