A farewell...........

This is a farewell post for my term over at CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!  It's been fun to share over at CAS-ual Fridays but all good things must "move on" as I say!

This week's challenge is goodbye or farewell cards that are long (2 x 4, 4 x 6 etc)
*It's a 1 week challenge and the sponsor this week.......CAS-ual Fridays!!*

I've been seeing lots of watercoloring out there lately so I thought I'd do a resist watercolor.  I've stamped my sentiment (Treasured Words by Verve) and then clear heat embossed my floral image (Surely Goodness by Verve).  Taking Worn Lipstick and Shabby Shutters Distress Inks........I very quickly watercolored using my waterbrush over my floral image taking care to be a "little" messy outside the lines a bit for that true watercolor look.  If you know me at all, you know that I love my Distress Inks!


After my image was completely dry, I attached it to a Berry Sorbet card base.  The splotches across my card are made with Smooch Spritz Vanilla Shimmer over the entire's so shimmery in real life!  I still wanted to be able to use an A2 envie for this card so I simply trimmed it to 3 1/2 on the short side.

Thanks for sharing a part of your day with me!
