CCCB Solid as a Rock

Hi there!
I hope you had a good weekend ... Are you enjoying the Olympics? 
I'm not really into sport ... I'd rather be crafting ... but I did love the opening ceremony ...
Anyway ...  I hope those of you who are watching enjoy it and I wish everyone the best of luck!

Tuesday means another new challenge at City Crafter Challenge Blog and this week our hostess is Kirsty!

Kirsty is asking that we use solid colours only ... NO patterned paper, patterned card or DP of any sort ... Just card stock .. and of course any embellishments that you may want to add
Some of theses themes really challenge me ... but it's a fun way to discover different looks and techniques ... I used one I have used before and that is splashing paint onto plain card stock

I had some paint that was almost a perfect match for the PTI Ocean tides cardstock ... just paint from one of those tester pots ... nothing fancy ... but I do add water and then just flick a brush over the white card ... 

I cut out a space big enough to stamp the sentiment with a SB die and added a little SB frame
... a few embellishments and it's done!

This is Lauren's last week Guesting for us at CCCB and I'm sure you have loved seeing her creations as much as me ... 
For your chance of Guesting with us all you have to do is link up your creation in the next 7days and check back to see our winner ... 

Have fun and I'll be back tomorrow
