i see you...

Hello... popping with a card that I made for a couple of challenges:  CASology (you) and the Paper Players (a color challenge).   The October card kit from Simon Says Stamp came with this really fun stamp set called "I See You".  When I saw the CASology challenge I knew I wanted to use that set for my card.  The color combo at the Paper Players is red, green and yellow.  All colors that would work well for a Christmas card, but I decided to use the colors create a card with a bit of a funky vibe to it.  I started by taping a piece of water color paper to my little bamboo board and using yellow and green paints from my Gansi Tambi watercolor paints set to create my background.  Once the background was dry I stamped the glasses in red ink and the sentiment "i see you" in black ink.  I let the piece continue to dry and then this morning die cut the piece using the second largest die in the A Jillian Vance Design Polka Dot Rectangle Backdrop dies set.  Mounted the piece on some PTI Fresh Snow linen cardstock and then added a sprinkling of Pretty Pink Posh clear sequins.  I'm pretty pleased with how the watercolored background turned out!  Also adding this to the current Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge:  water coloring.

 
 
Thanks for stopping by today...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI linen, Ranger watercolor paper; Stamps:  Simon Says Stamp; Inks:  SU! Real Red, Memento Tuxedo Black; watercolor paints:  Kuretake Gansai Tambi; Pretty Pink Posh clear sequins; Die:  A Jillian Vance Design
