CCEE1748 - Celebrate Babies or Weddings

For her last CCEE Stampers challenge this month, Joanne asks us to make either a baby card OR a wedding card.  We can choose.  I used the Watercolor Imprints technique for the background of my wedding card.


To make this card, I swiped some Ranger Distress ink (in this case, Worn Lipstick and Squeezed Lemonade) across a piece of watercolor paper.  After spritzing it with water, I laid down a doily stencil over the inked watercolor paper -- weighing down the edges so that it doesn't move.  When the ink dried, When you lift off the stencil, the design will appear on the watercolor paper.  Then it was just a matter of stamping the sentiment with Versafine black ink and adhering the CottageCutz die-cut silhouette.  I was really happy with the way this card turned out because watercoloring is not my forte, and I don't use watercolor techniques often.

Stop over at the CCEE Stampers blog to see some more baby and/or wedding cards.
