Our last Belated 2nd Birthday Bash Special Guest Star post could not be with a more appropriate artist than our dear friend Laurie Willison. Laurie is incredibly sweet, generous of spirit, supportive and such a lovely person not to mention having clean and simple skills honed to perfection! It makes our 2nd birthday all the sweeter to have her celebrate with us.
You are going to be as taken with Laurie's card as I am!
Hey there crafty friends! I am so excited to be joining the girls at Winnie and Walter today! I have a card to share for Heather H's challenge. It's all about the Watercolor and Gold.
I am generally a very CAS stamper. I like a quick and simple card, one layer, all the white....but lately I have been inspired by all the watercoloring I have seen. I have loved playing around with water and my Peerless watercolors to see what I can create.
For this card I used the Cover Model: The Leaf Effect Cutaway die to create the background. First, I added in some water colors just to the center of the paper. I cut it out with the cover die and added it to a card base. For the gold, I took the In a Word: Hello Cutaway die, and cut out it with some DCWV Gold glitter card stock. I stared at the card forever trying to figure out what else it needed, so before I added in the gold sentiment, I took more pinkish purple watercolor and flicked it across the card. I cut the Hello die out of fun foam as well, to give the sentiment some dimension. After I added that to the card front, I decided I it was finished!
