FM 168 Summer Card

Lisa's challenge this week at Friday mashup came easily to me, once I got my new order of the new in-colors. I hummed and hawed for quite a while before deciding to get the new in colors. After all there are only a few I really like. But the bundle with the paper and ink is such a good deal it didn't make sense to order everything individually. 

Thank you Lisa for the great challenge. I think the colors work very well together!!!

Here's your Mashup Challenge:

1. Create a project using the colors" Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon & Mossy Meadow".
2. Create a project with a "Summer" theme . (Beach, Picnic, Swimming, etc.) 
3. or Mash it Up! and create a "Summer project using the colors above".

For the background I used my brayer and inked up the Cloud embossing folder. You have to get it really inked up or you can end up with spots uninked. Then you place your very vanilla card stock in the embossing folder and run it through you big shot, leaving the clouds to stand out uninked.

To get the sun I punched my Hello Honey with my scalloped circle. Then I used a post it note to help me stick the punched circle back into the punch and punched one more time, giving you smaller rays for your sun.

FM167 Minimal Layers Watercolor Wash

As it turns out the water-colour wash isn't a technique that turned out too well for me but you win some you lose some. I only had one peice of water-colour paper so I had to go with whatever happened on the paper. Trust me the back side of my card is much worse. I will have to get some more water-colour paper and give this technique another try.
Thank you for this weeks challenge Heidi!

Here's your Mashup Challenge:

1. Create a Project with a "Watercolor Wash".

3. or Mash it Up! and create a "CAS project with a Watercolor Wash".
