CAS-ual Friday's Stamps Feature - Thanksgiving !!

Hello friends!! Today I am here for CAS-ual Friday's Stamps  feature post. For this post I thought it would be good to create some cards for the Thanksgiving :) which is right around the corner.

I created two cards using the CAS-ual Friday's Amber waves set and also incorporated the CAS-ual Friday's 4 Petal Fri-Die in one of the card. I had so much fun. Here's a look into my cards and how I made them....

Lately, I have been obsessed with water colors... so obviously I have used water colors. The watercoloring was done using distress inks, namely Mustard seed, Vintage photo and Antique linen. For the first card, I die cut the flowers in water color paper and colored them. On the card base, I added the sentiment in a curvy line linking the flower placement. Then I added some circular strokes of water color in yellow and brown. I also stamped the wheat from the stamp set. To finish the card, I stamped the sentiment, added the flowers and sequins. I am linking this card to Virginia's View Challenge #8 - CAS and House of Cards October challenge - Use Dies, Keep it simple #50 - Three
In my second card, I did some watercolor wash technique starting with darkest of brown at the corner and going lighter to the inside. Then I stamped the wheat in distress inks and went over with a water brush to smudge the look. To finish the card, I heat embossed the sentiment.  I am linking this card to Simon Say's Wednesday Challenge - Use water colors, Just us girls challenge #262 - Ombre and Crazy for CAS #55 - One layer stamped
  
I enjoyed making these cards! I hope I was able to inspire you. Thank you for stopping by and leaving me a comment :)

  50. Each is absolutely stunning. I love how you have created a detailed collage on the first but it's still totally clean (although probably not simple!). On your second card, the grain fading into the distance is truly lovely.
