Celebrate Your Day- CAS Watercolour Challenge

Hello and Welcome.

It's time for another card for the 

Fun theme this month:

I began by inking up my embossing folder using my Distress Oxide inks.
I started at the top with the lightest colour and worked down to the darkest.
When it was all inked, I sprayed it with water and pressed it onto my white cardstock.
I love the print it created.
Next, I placed the inked piece into my Misti and stamped the sentiment using black ink. I clear heat embossed it to make it pop.
As a finishing touch, I doodled a blackline border around the edge.
Simple, fun looking card.

I hope you will come and play along with us.
Thanks for stopping by.

This is gorgeous Karen and love the mix of bright rainbow colours, and the inked embossing folder pressed on to your card has come out so well, also the black sentiment gives great contrast. x

Karen this is one of my favorite techniques which I love to do and to teach. This is not an easy embossing folder to do something with but you made it look fantastic. Always love your creations. :) Barbara R

What a fabulous background. I think I tried this once and it did not get as sharp a color pattern as you got. I might have to try it again some time soon. I sure love your card though.
