Live the life you have Imagined - CR84FN39

It's time for another wonderful challenge at the CR84FN Challenge Blog!  Thanks so much to those of you who play along with us!  Marie is joining us again as our guest, be sure to stop by and she what she's created this week.  The colors for the next two week challenge period are Orange, Yellow and Brown, fab colors for all your fall paper crafting projects!

I took the CAS approach for this weeks card, morphing the Expressionistic Watercolor Technique, by using Distress Stains in place of ink pads.  All images are from Stampotique, stamped on Stampin' Up!'s Shimmer White card stock.


Details:
Stamps - Stampotique Originals

Ink - Ranger Coffee Archival, Distress Stain Mustard, Rusty Hinge
Card Stock - Tangerine, Chocolate, Shimmer White
Other - Heat Tool, Spritz Bottle, SAMJ
