The first half of March has whoosed past and it's time for another
CAS Watercolour card.
Spring is just a few days away for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere.
The tulips will be blooming very soon.
I used a NBUS tulip stamp, inking it with Fossilized Amber
and stamping on the smooth side of my watercolor paper.
I smooshed some Distress stains on my home made palette
(a piece of laminated white cardstock) and used my Aqua Painter
to pick up the ink and paint it around the flowers
The MISTI made it possible to stamp again adding the lines back in.
and I added some shading with the small end of the a Barn Door Distress Marker.
I used a marker to line the stems and added water with my Aqua Painter.
There is a very light wash of blue in the background.
FYI, the black frame came about because I cut the design piece too small.
That was after cutting the circle aperture and measuring carefully.
It ended up being a happy accident though, after spending an hour finding
a circle die that was just the right size!
There's still time to enter at
The challenge is open until the 24th.
The Design Team and our Guest Designer, Heather, have been busy
creating spring cards to inspire you.
