Well hello 2017! First the crazy rush to get ready for Christmas. Then a couple quiet days with family around the tree (and dining room table - seems all we do is eat!) Then the nice and laid back days between Christmas and New Year's. And suddenly here it is, January 1st, 2017!
I wish all of you lovelies who still stop by the blog nothing but the best for the next 365 day trip around the sun!!!
It's no surprise we're starting off the new year at the Mixed Media Card Challenge with this theme.
I went CASsy with a housewarming card using watercolors!
Stamped some STAMPlorations Shirley's Houses in gray and one with black on watercolor paper. Messy watercolored it with Gansai Tambi red, orange and yellow and fussy cut it. Gave the windows a welcoming glow with sparkling H2Os. See the sparkle below?
Before adhering the house I masked the two houses and stamped the foreground with Stampendous Floral Tapestry. I applied embossing paste (colored with yellow acrylic paint) through ARTplorations Clouds and stamped my sentiment from Stampendous Baby Girl to look like a plume of smoke from the chimney.
There you have it. CAS yet a little messy! Again Happy New Year and thanks for coming by here! I hope you'll have time to join us at the MMCC this month.
