Day 5 was hosted by the wonderful Jennifer McGuire who showed us how easy it is to do colour blocking with Tim Holtz Distress Inks on watercolour paper. Now I didn't have watercolour paper so I tried my hand at it using cardstock--I would not recommend using cardstock! Sometimes we need to share the good and the not so good. Day 5 was not so good for me. :( I ended up cutting the blocks out from the cardstock and mounting them on to another card base. Overall wasn't happening but if you don't try you will never know. So I will share a tiny picture. LOL
Day 6, hosted by Kristina Werner, was about creating simple embellishments for your CAS cards. I have had this Heart Winged Butterfly from hero Arts for a few years and thought it was the perfect time to dust it off and create a black embossed butterfly. There are so many ways to create your own simple embellishments.
