Birds on a Wire


Today I have a CAS card to share with you. I'm not very good at this style (and consequently don't use it often), but every once in a while I get the itch to try it again.


My inspiration for this card came from the color theme from The Paper Players and the CAS Winged theme from STAMPlorations. 

To create this card I:
  • stamped my Worn Lipstick and Wild Honey Distress Oxide (Ranger) pads onto an acrylic block
  • added some water and painted across the top of my watercolor paper
    • the two colors mixed together in the middle form the pretty shade of orange!
  • added some splatters in the same colors
  • stamped the Studio G sentiment in Peeled Paint Distress Oxide (Ranger)
  • Die cut the birds from Birds on a Wire (Spellbinders die)
  • Matted the watercolor panel on black cardstock

This is such a pretty way to use the colours. The birds stand out so prettily against the 'sky' you've made for them. Thank you for joining us at The Paper Players this week.

Oh how pretty - and I have this die - but seldom use it. Great job.

Love the rainbow effect of the background, the birds look terrific against it, like the splattering also!

Esther, your CAS card is perfect! I have trouble with this style, too! I love the beautiful sky you created for the silhouettes. Very pretty! So happy you joined my color challenge at The Paper Players this week! XX
