CMCC15 and JUGS236

Happy Saturday, everyone!  What a gorgeous day it is here in PA!  FINALLY!  I made a quick card after running my errands using the Colour Me…! challenge:
along with the JUGS challenge:

 of a watercolored background:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Another Thank You Watercolor Stampin UP

I needed a thank you card for someone special who did me a big favor, and I have done this watercolor resist technique before, and I thought these fun colors would be great!   I heat embossed the “thank you” from Another Thank You polymer set with Versamark and clear EP, then simply painted on some Bermuda Bay ink and water.  I did add a few speckles, then a couple of embellishments:


I stuck a Candy Brad on the inside of a small Designer Vintage Faceted button and adhered to a heart diecut from the Hearts Framelits set.  Easy peasy!  Enjoy your day!

No more markers for Cassidy (at least for a while!):


Products used (plus retired Bermuda Bay ribbon and Itty Bitty Backgrounds):

  6. Great job on that background! I love the fun colors and the added speckles. Thanks for playing with us at JUGS!

  7. This is a great color combination-will have to try it out and I'm loving the watercoloring these days as a background. Will have to try them emboss resist with it, it's perfect. The picture of Cassidy-cracks me up!!! At least she was having some fun.

  8. LeAnne, I love your technique on this card! I just tried that last week, and then I did the iron-off emboss thing... it's so cool! Thanks for playing at Colour Me...! this week!

  9. Wow LeAnne this is so great! Love your bold image and the watercolor looks awesome! Thanks for joining us this week at Colour Me...!

  11. I recognized that as the resist technique right off but didn't realize it was water color. Of course it is!!! It is wonderful.

  12. This is a great card. Bold and beautiful! Clearly your daughter NEEDS to have more markers!! I love it!! Thanks for joining us at Just Us Girls this week!!
