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

  1. A well deserved guest designer spot for you, your cards are always quite spectacular. This is really pretty with the unexpected splattering. TFS!

  2. Your masking and watercolouring of all your flowers turned out beautifully, Mac. I love how your splattering added even more texture. TFS and for being our guest designer this month. I have always loved your CAS style my friend. Hugs...

  3. Great job with masking to create a multi-flower design. This is really gorgeous and masking opens up lots of possibilities to use stamps in a new way. Love the soft pink peonies and those beautiful white hydrangeas together. The splatters add a great finishing detail. Would love you to join us over at CAS Mix Up with this beautful card, Mac.

  23. Two things touched me in your beautiful card. A wonderfully subtle contrast between the white base and so beautifully painted background and delicate peony. The second thing is so smartly repainted colors on HUGS. Did I tell you that you are brilliant?
