CASology #266

Welcome to Week 266 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:

I loved this July post from Jennifer McGuire about block watercolor stamping.  All those rainbow colours made me happy and it's the kind of watercolor look that anyone can manage.  I finally got around to trying it out and made 10 cards including this one with one of my favourite cake images (from Concord & 9th).  I love how the yellow is a little brighter just around the candles.  Kind of makes them feel like they're glowing.  Happy accident!

Looking forward to seeing what direction the cue word takes you.  Check out the gorgeousness from the rest of the design team then play along!

Yay! For one week we are on the same team, how awesome is that. I LOL when I saw your card, I had that Concord & 9th set out on my desk when I was playing with ideas. I love that bright pop of orangey red you have used here. Clairexx

Well now this is just awesome. I love how you have heat embossed the image before applying the color. Great take on the challenge, thanks so much for playing along with us this week over at Just Us Girls!!

You're right, Jen, those candles are glowing. You did a great job with the block watercoloring and I'm glad you shared your card with us at Just Us Girls.

That glow around the candles is brilliant, Jen ... happy accident or not! Love all those vibrant colours with the white embossing, they're so rich and delicious (rather like the cake I guess!). Hugs, Anita :)
