"SIMON SAYS WEDNESDAY CHALLENGE - Make Your Own Background (Water Color Distress Backgrounds for Cards)

 click on pictures for a larger version

Hello Shades of Stamping readers, Connie Paxman here from Stony Rapids, Saskatchewan.
Be sure to stop by Simon Says Blog - Wednesday Challenge and feast your crafting appetite on the what other challenge players created 
I have to share today, five Cards I created using Water Colors and Dry Embossing; I made these cards for one of my customers.
First, I must say, water color paints are by far my favorite art medium.
Water Color paints allows for an inherent freedom of expression.  The paints, blamelessly stream where they may, into indiscriminate color formations. There are no mistakes and each piece brings about its own personality. This, is my passion, to create with no rules and go with the flow. For added dimension, I  ran the pieces through my Big Shot machine using Dry Embossing Folders.  After dry embossing the water color pieces, I gently sanded off the raised portion of water color. Voila and another expression is born. 
Water Color Paints:  Zig Kuretake Gansa Tabi and Dick Blick
Border Punches:  Friskars and Martha Stewart 
Stamps:  Stampin Up
thanks you for visiting my blog and I enjoy your comments.
