This is for the first CAS challenge in the Spring DT search. We were to be inspired by makeup and use paint, wet embossing, reinkers, wet paintbrush, ect.
Sky Blue is a BIG eye color makeup this year so I went with blues and boy oh boy did I bring lots of blue! As a matter of fact I completely lost sight of the whole clean and simple aspect of this challenge...I hope they don't kick me out for lack of paying attention...giggle, giggle!! Anywhoooo, it's too late to start over and I did manage to bring my own style of watercoloring and inks that look like paint and wet embossing. And, I do have a focal point!
SU's Shimmery White cs and bg image from My Friend. Image was sponged with Goosebumps clear texture spray and lightly tapped onto cs. Distress ink pads in Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Faded Jeans were used to swipe across the image. Then I used a really moist paper towel and rubbed the entire card until it was quite damp. Then I applied the Tumbled Glass pad directly to the cs and gently rubbed. Dabbed a little Crushed Olive color here and there and this was the result.

Gorgeous! I love blue, and blue & white together is fantastic in my book. I love your blend of blues over the white embossing, and those extra swaths of blue gives the whole thing some dimension. Love it. Good luck!
