The Flower #7, CAS Watercolor and CAS Mix-Up

Have you ever gotten your challenges mixed up?  I made this card thinking it would be for both CAS Watercolor and The Flower Challenge. Then as I began writing my post I realized (duh) it's not watercolored.  It's still good for The Flower Challenge, though.

I used an embossing border for the horizontal panel and added the flowers from Altenew stamped in their inks.  See the sketch below.

Then I saw this card from Bonnie, and told her I was going to CASE it and I did.  This one will go to CAS Watercolor.

I used embossing paste through a stencil on my card base.  While it was drying, I die cut the flower from Memory Box and watercolored it with DIs, adding a few splatters.  I inlaid the die cut back into the panel on the card.  And you know what that means?  This card is also good for CAS Mix-Up because it has stamping, inlaid die cut, embossing paste and watercoloring.  

While I was doing this I decided to do another card, changing it up a little. It's not for any challenge.  Just another sympathy card to add to my depleted stash.

I watercolored this flower from SSS with Zigs.  Instead of embossing paste, I stenciled the background with gray ink.

I think that's good for today.  Thanks for dropping by.

  10. A trio of beautiful blooms, Bobby, be they stamped or water-coloured! Wish you didn't have to create so many prayers/sympathy...but how wonderful that you do, because these are sure to lift spirits and bring comfort. The pink poppies paired with the embossing paste are especially eye-catching; a design that, with a change of sentiment, would fit a multitude of occasions!
    Hugs~c
