Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!



I played along with two challenges this past evening, one was CAS Mix Up where my background was made using a paper towel to stamp with. I love the way the texture of the paper towel made the background turn out. All I did was fold the paper towel, stick it in the Oxide Ink and dab. Then I decided to cut the background into strips for something a bit different.  I added Stamping and watercolors to this challenge.

Next, the butterflies and leaves were watercolored for the CAS Watercolour Challenge where they asked for colorful butterflies.

It was nice to get creative again this week as work has kept me out of the studio as of late.

Card Details:  Stamp set was Pretty Pink Posh, leaves are a Verve Die-cut, rectangle dies are both MFT.

Have a great weekend, Nanc’
