Today's card is a CAS Water Colour Card.....
I used a stencil for the water-colouring of the flowers
and used Lindy's Magical powders to water-colour with.
 As water-colouring is new to me 
I felt the stencil helped me with the confidence to give it a try.
The Lindy's magical powders played really well together.
Some have the mica in them, which adds a beautiful twinkle to the card.

After the card was dry, my intention was to 
stamp over the water-colouring with the co-coordinating stamp....
I had used the stencil the other way around so I couldn't!

However...I felt the card was quite loose (for me) so I was happy x

I lightly water-coloured the background with grey 
and splattered with pink magicals.
The sentiment is stamped in graduating tones of green with the help of the Misti.
The die cut rectangle has been popped up onto foam.

The inspiration to make the card came from the... 
The CAS Water-colour Challenge, which is Spring
I am thrilled to have been given an outstanding design shout out for this card-Thank you x
and The Rubber Dance Challenge - Everything Spring
Crafty Hugs x
I would also like to pop my card into the following fun challenges...
