CAS Watercolour August 2017 using Salt

Another card for CAS Watercolour 


This was a small piece that I used salted water on and didn't think I could make anything out of it, but decided to cut a couple butterflies and it worked perfectly.

CAS Mix Up August Challenge using Alcohol Inks

Finally got a chance and some mojo to create another card with the some of the papers I created with Alcohol Inks.  I started out making this for CAS Watercolor, but the background wasn't right for the color of the butterfies with the salted technique.  So I looked through AI papers and thought this was perfect for the BG. 

BG is Altenew Watercolor Stripes Stencil sponged with DOX inks

CAS Watercolour August Challenge

A card for CAS Watercolour 


I sponged, stamped, and used my Gasai Tambi paints and added table salt to my sun.
I think maybe I should have made the sun a little smaller.

CAS Mix Up August & Fusion Pastel Pencils

A second card for CAS Mix Up 

& a card for Fusion
I used both the sketch and the pastels colors.
This card was made with the alcohol inks using the ombre method and they turned out a little more muted.
Used PTI's Stylized Autumn for the leaves and some velum and Keep It Simply, Sympathy.

Oh my gosh it is so hot for us Washingtonians.  In the 90's for the next week or so.  Ugh.  So I am holed up in my air conditioned craft room and doing some crafting.  Yeah!!!!

Thanks for stopping by.
