CAS Watercolour Reminder Post........

Still smiling and still thrilled to be the Guest Designer this month
at The CAS Watercolour May Challenge,
which is Flowers.
So many beautiful entries in the gallery....
If you've time please pop across and take a look x
This is my card for the CAS Watercolour May Reminder post.....
The peony flowers have been stamped individually, masked 
and then heat embossed with white embossing powder.
The Hydrangeas and leaves have also been stamped and masked individually,
with grey and green inks to form the posy of flowers.
The Water colouring has been done with zigs and Gansai Tambi paints.
The sentiment has been die cut, hi-lighted in pink and green 
and popped up for dimension.
I finished with die cutting the image, popping it into a frame 
and splattering with white and gold acrylic paint.

When I did this card.....the stamp was one stamp, 
whereas this card was made with a several stamps and lots of masking.
Learning all the time and loving it!

I hope you find time to join in this fun and friendly challenge
and I thank you once again for the kind invite x

Today's Card.....
I started with scraping heavy white gesso through the pretty Ryn flower stencil.
The background was then blended with several different colours 
of distress inks, after the gesso had fully dried.
The distress inks where wiped off the flower, leaving a ghosting effect.
I hi-lighted the flower with a white ink pen and splattered pink, black 
and gold splats over the card.
The Love sentiment has been die cut and popped up onto foam.
I had fun with this card.
Thank you so much for stopping by.

Guest Designer CAS Watercolour....

Thrilled to be invited to be the Guest Designer 
at the
CAS Watercolour Challenge this month....
Lots of scope for the theme this month.........
They have an amazing and friendly design team 
and the most fabulous inspirational creations...

Here is my card.....
I started with stamping and heat embossing the circle stamp three times.
The circles have been water coloured using the wet on wet technique 
and several different colours of Distress Inks.

I stamped the circles again, cut them out 
and used them as masks to stamp the flowers.
The flowers have been coloured using distress inks, zigs 
and watered down acrylic inks.
I splattered some water and lifted some of the colour
 and also splattered colours of pink and green.
The tiny script has been stamped with archival green ink
and a little embellishing with a white pen to finish.

I hope you find time to join in this fun and friendly challenge this month.
I am absolutely delighted and thrilled to be guesting this month 
and I thank you once again for the opportunity xx
