CTS77, AAA3 - Happy Birthday!


Another take on AAA Card's Game 3 - where this card by Linda Beeson is our inspiration:



and also for this week's CAS(E) This Sketch challenge:





This colour scheme is one of my favourites - it's warm and fun and very vibrant. I used re inkers and a water brush to put drops onto a piece of acetate. I then spritzed the acetate with water and laid it on my watercolour paper panel. I finished the card with a MFT die and one black enamel dot.

Cool watercolor technique. I like the bright colors with the bold black die cut sentiment.

You did it Ardyth... you took the "plunge"... water on your card, and you did a fabulous job! The bold black just look awesome on the splashes of color.
Thanks for playing at AAA cards!

Cool blend of 2 challenges! Isn't it so fun to mix them! Our designer must have had a big smile when she saw it. Your watercoloring technique is lovely, thank you so much for sharing and playing our AAA Card CAS Challenge! Cheers, Victoria Lavender

Oooh, this is neat. I have to try that technique, if I can do it without reinkers.
