CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #93

Just in case you missed it. Check this post for a little giveaway! =)

Happy Friday! It's time for a new CAS-ual Fridays Challenge! Here is this week's challenge.


This was a real challenge for me! I rarely use colors in blocks and it gave me a headache trying to come up with a card.


In the end, it's patterned paper that saved me. I knew there is a reason that I have tons of them! =) I splashed some watered down inks on a piece of watercolor paper before stamping the easel, palette and sentiment from I Heart Art set by Paper Smooches. The paint tubes (is it what they are called?) are stamped and colored with watered down inks. All the images are then fuzzy cut out.


The patterned paper is from Sketchbook 6x6 Paper Pad by American Crafts. After gluing all the pieces down, some ink splashes were added to match the focal point.


This week's sponsor is CutCardStock and they are providing a $25 gift certificate to one lucky winner of the challenge. For more details, please visit CAS-ual Fridays Challenge! Hope you can join us this week! =)


Have a happy day and thanks for stopping by!

A fantastic job with the color blocking! Love how it's not so graphic, as color blocking usually lends itself to.
