All you need is Ice Cream and Watercolors








 

It's Summer and I'll play with popsicles all month! I had been making my own, and now I have my Simon Says Stamp "Ice Cream Dreams" set and a new SSS card kit.

I am having a very nice and much needed quiet Summer. Last year my husband started his battle against cancer and it's looking like he won. And my sisters fiancee was killed in a motorcycle accident (his family booted her out of his home ASAP-scum). So I really am enjoying the peace this year. And yes, I count my blessings daily!

I started making cards again this past February as my husband was getting better. Now I'm head over heels loving CAS Cards!  Which leads us to my challenge- AAA CAS Card Challenges. The best team of artists are here offering a new CAS challenge each week. This week we are revisiting WATERCOLOR.

Take a moment to visit AAA Cards. Check out the great DT cards and become involved in creating clean, mailable cards with us! Thanks so much for dropping by. Hugs ya'll.

Items used: Kelly Smooth Cardstock 110# Bright white, Distress stains; shaded lilac, salty ocean & broken china,
 Ranger "Glossy Accents", Marvy corner punch, Simon Ssays Stamp "Ice Cream Dreams" set.

  11. Hi Victoria, I was admiring your card again today (it is by far my favorite in the galery!!) and I was wondering how you seperated the background from the coloring in the icecreams. Did you mask them all at once?
