CASology #90 and a second card for PTI

I just love those cue words at CASology - this time its WET. For wet spring maybe? Or tears? So many possibilities....I went with the tears - can never pass up an opportunity to play with my Ryn Tanaka stamps......


I used water color paper, stamped the tears and then colored them in with diluted distress inks - lots of water here...



I added glossy accents to make them extra wet and tiny liquid enamel dots for extra reflection. The sentiment is by IO. 



---X---

I had cut up too much paper for this weeks Make it Monday challenge and did not want to throw it out. So I just made a second card with the scraps. Quite similar to my first card - you can see it HERE


The wooden speech bubbles are from Michaels, the sentiment is by CASual Fridays, and I used the Papertrey Harlequin embossing folder for the quilted look.
And since this card used up scraps I am linking it with the Snippets Playground

Hello again :) Love getting emails from you. Your cards are always a treat to see! Great take on the CAS theme. I like how you elongated the trail of the drops to the top of the card. Great idea and nicely done. I'll of course add this to April's draw etc. Many thanks!

Manuela said...

Hallo Cornelia, danke für dein netten Kommentar. Das Papier ist von Rössler, habe das mal in einem Papiergeschäft gekauft, vielleicht bekommst du es über ebay oder in einem gut sortierten Schreibwarenladen.
Deine "Tears" Karte sieht super aus und gefällt mir sehr gut. Lg Manuela
