Another Tag

Hi folks!  I have another tag using watercolor in pink and green.

This time I made it into a card for the CAS Watercolour Challenge that ends tonight.


I used the Poppystamps Pin Point Main Street tag die again.

I love this die!

This time I cut it twice and scored 1/2" from the top on one die cut.
By adding adhesive at the top, it opens like a card.

The design piece was stamped using Distress inks and
moving the color around with an Aqua Painter.

Once the flowers were dry, I did a wet on wet wash around the flowers.

I used watercolor pencils to add some details to the flowers and stems.
It's a technique that I learned from an Altenew class that Marika taught.

The die cut love and embossed layers complete the project.

CAS Watercolour closes on the 24th.
