Cas Colours & Sketches CHallenge #157

Cas Colours & Sketches challenge #157

The colours from Stampin’ Up:
I’ve used Distress inks as a watercolouring medium:  Abandoned coral. Scattered straw and frayed burlap.
I’ve used monsters as they can be any colour in my opinion, and I gave them googly eyes because monsters need googly eyes ;-)

I’ve used a Create a smile stamp set called Big time for both monsters and sentiment. Stamped it all with StazOn  black ink as it’s waterproof. Because it’s watercolour paper , and although I stamped on the smoother side, the stamping wasn’t perfect, so I used a black fine tip Sharpie to fix the lines that weren’t perfectly stamped. If you have a MISTI you can stamp more than once, I didn’t want to risk a second stamping, it never works out if you freehand it..not for me anyway even with clear stamps.
I’ve only used the three colours, even the ground their standing on is frayed burlap, watered down more.

I’ve attached my watercolour panel with foam tape to a card base.

  2. What a darling card for a child! Those monsters are too cute to be scary! I love your use of the wiggly eyes - it's a perfect finishing touch.

  3. This is such a cute card. Very CAS, great sentiment and I adore the monsters!
