Colour Q #245 -- First Take


I missed some of my posty time this weekend. Wow. Trying to find the time to do it that correlates with a time when my kids aren't hogging the laptop is challenging. Sometimes I just pull the "Mom Card" and boot them off, but many times I don't have the energy to go there. I have so many other things to do that I just procrastinate.  Surprise, surprise.

I have two projects I made using Colour Q colors this week and I want to share my card with this post.

I cut a stencil using my CTMH Artbooking Cricut cartridge and then used a watercolor paint technique.

I stamped ink onto my acrylic blocks and then misted it with water. I used a paintbrush to pick that up and brush it over the stencil. I used CTMH colors Pacifica, Pear, Sweet Leaf, and Smoothie. I then stamped the birthday sentiment from PTI's Keep It Simple: Birthday. I used Distress Watercolor cardstock and layered that over my White PTI cardbase. I really talked to myself about keeping it this one layer and NOT adding any dots or sequins. I felt so lost, but I think it works well super CAS. =)

Thank you for stopping by to visit!

God Bless,
