CAS Colours & Sketches – Challenge #352 – Colors – Birthday Card

Hello there and Happy New Year!

I hope your New Year is off to a great start! Can’t believe it’s already January 7th, 2020! It’s time to start our first colors challenge this year at CAS Colours and Sketches!


First, I started water coloring my background with Gansai Tambi onto a piece of Tim Holtz’s watercolor card stock and waited until it’s completely dried. Next, I stamped the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp’s Big Birthday Greetings with Versa Mark Ink and heat embossed with WOW Embossing Powder.

I die cut the background with My Favorite Things Stamps’ Tag Die. I used a Copic’s Multiliner to add a thin outline around the tag.  Next, I glued the tag onto a piece of 4″ by 5.25″ white card stock. To finish the card, I adhered the card panel onto my A2 Bazzill’s Sour Lemon card base.


I hope you like the card and will play along with us at CC&S! Thanks for stopping by and see you all next time!

  1. I love your card Holly! What a perfect colour blend and a great idea to use that as a background for your graphic sentiment and to turn it into a tag.


  2. Love the ink blending! I used this same sentiment for my son as a confidence builder when he was trying out for his 9th grade basketball team. That sentiment is near and dear to my heart. (He did make the team)


  3. Awesome card, Holly! I really love how you watercolored that sentiment with the colors! And you outlined it by hand?!! I can use a ruler, but I always end up not matching up the points; yours looks perfect!
