Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge -- Candy Apple & CAS(E) This Sketch #188

The LEAD of the Candy Apple Challenge will be invited as a 
Guest Designer in a future challenge!
Please visit the Curtain Call Challenge Blog for all the challenge info and deadline.

I also used some Reverse Confetti products to make my card.

I started by watercoloring a rectangular shape onto my watercolour paper
with my Zig Markers and a water brush.
Once it was dry, I splattered some ripe avocado ink mixed with water over it.
I diecut a Double Panel Circle Confetti Cuts from black cardstock and layered it over top.

I diecut two apples using my All Apples Confetti Cuts
and stamped them using my All Apples stamps.
A sprinkling of wooden stars finishes it off.

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see the rest of the DT's takes on the sketch 
and to play along, if you'd like.
You have until Thursday, August 25th to link up your card.


Make sure you visit each of the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge
 designers' blogs for more inspiration!
Thanks for looking!

Hello Leigh: Thank you for your comment on my blog entry to this challenge. I'm now realizing that I don't have the color black on that card except for the black Stazon ink I used to stamp my image, I apologize for this.
Your card is so beautiful, any teacher would be delighted receiving it.
Love those dies, they add a fabulous texture to your design.
Paper Hugs,
Maria Rodriguez.
