Fab Friday 54

Oh yes, it’s Friday peeps!! It was a gloomy rainy day yesterday but it’s supposed to be nice, if not a little chilly for the weekend. I’m looking forward to this weekend! Tonight I have to run to New Jersey and tomorrow I’m going to another rubber stamp show in Connecticut with Michael and Sue. That should be fun, we’re going to stop at another Hobby Lobby too! Heather is going back to finalize the apartment tonight, she’s quite excited about that! Everything is set up to be a great weekend! What do you have planned?

Today I’m over on the Fab Friday blog for our color challenge…

Fab Fri 54 11-07-2014

I sort of had an idea as to what I was going to do, I knew that I wanted to watercolor, and that I wanted some woodgrain. The base of today’s card is Whisper White Card Stock, I adhered a piece of Watercolor Paper to the entire front. My background is a piece of Cajun Craze, I used a Tim Holtz stencil, Woodgrain, along with Embossing Paste to create it. All of the images are from the Choose Happiness Stamp Set and are all stamped on Watercolor Paper. The flowers are stamped in Blackberry Bliss, the leaves in Crushed Curry, the woodgrain flag in Cajun Craze and the greeting in Blackberry Bliss. I used a brush and some water to pull color from the stamped area into the rest of the image. They are all cut out with my Paper Snips, the leaves are adhered with Multi-Purpose Glue and everything else with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I used the Banners Framelits to cut out the woodgrain flag and the greeting is punched out with the Label Bracket Punch. I edged the greeting with my Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Write Marker to give it a little definition. I love the texture of the embossing past woodgrain background and the stamp set is perfect for using this type of watercolor technique. I really hope that you enjoyed my card for the Fab Friday color challenge and will give the watercoloring a try. Make sure and stop by the BLOG to see what the other design team members have done and don’t forget to make something and upload it to the gallery for us to see. Thank you so much for visiting me today. Have an amazing Friday my friends! 🙂
