CAS Geranium


Hi friends! It's Sunday and that means time for a new challenge at The Paper Players! This week the awesome Jaydee is our hostess with a Clean-and-simple challenge: Blooms. You know I am all over this one!



So here is my CAS creation. I love a card like this - lots of white space, a little texture, and one pretty image. I left it sentiment free so it could be more of a note card than for a specific occasion. I'm on a watercoloring kick lately, so I heat embossed this and then colored with distress inks.


Stamp Sets: Geraniums (Stampendous)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Whisper White Textured (Stampin' Up), Smooth Watercolor (Bristol)
Ink Pads: Versamark, Watercolor Dot Palette (Daniel Smith)
Tools: Heat Gun, Paintbrushes
Accessories: White Embossing Powder (Hero Arts)

Thanks so much for stopping by! Please leave a comment, and then head over to visit the rest of the Design Team at The Paper Players. We hope you'll play along with our challenge this week, too! 

Inky hugs :)

My absolute fave flower for pots around here. I have to keep them in the backyard though...the deer think they are delicious too! Your card is absolutely gorgeous and beautifully watercolored. I hope you're having a great week ~ Hugs, Annie
